Last Words Cemetery Website GenealogyThe Last Words website is all about cemeteries and churchyards, now a lot of people would think it is rather odd to be interested in such grim places, but then they aren’t genealogists! Stephen Greene is the author of the site and as well as his contributions to the site he invites others to register and contribute photos etc. A united effort.

I was particularly drawn to his video of Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol, very atmospheric with music to match. The short video featured a number of monuments sadly not any of my ancestors who are buried there, but interesting to see the cemetery nevertheless. The site has offerings from Belgium, France, Hungary, Sweden, U.K. and the U.S.A.

The Arnos Vale video is to be found by clicking on the U.K. tab and the video is the second item down. Once you have viewed the video there comes up other “You Tube” videos, several of which are on Arnos Dale. When I get a moment I think I will spend some time seeing what other “You Tube” videos are available for ancestral places.

Take a look you never know what you’ll find.
