Tombstone Tuesday - Anne (Dudley) Bradstreet

I ran out of gravestone pictures of my ancestors some time ago, and therefore have posted no Tombstone Tuesday articles for months.

However, some of my distant blogging cousins are posting pictures of gravestones of my ancestors, so I thought that I would highlight one of them in order to continue the Tombstone Tuesday meme.

This week, Barbara Poole on the Life from the Roots blog shows a gravestone picture for Anne (Dudley) Bradstreet. Anne is one of my 9th great-grandmothers, and probably the best known of all of my colonial American ancestors. I posted Anne (Dudley) Bradstreet (1612-1672) - poetess last year to commemorate her life.

Thank you, Barbara, for the picture posted online of Anne's memorial stone. Please see Barbara's post for the details of the memorial in the Andover (MA) Burial Ground.

How does one have a conversation blog to blog? In any case: http://mhollick.typepad.com/slovakyankee/2009/12/anne-dudley-bradstreet-part-ii.html

I guess by picking one of the blogs and exchanging comments. It is not always easy for one of us to see the other's comments - you have to go to this blog post and see the comments, or I to your blog to see the comments.

Maybe Google Wave will be the answer, but not yet! When we get several thousand genealogists on google Wave then maybe we can have discussions rather than posts.

Facebook lets us have discussions from a starting point, like my blog post. Are you on Facebook? Are we Friends yet? I try to limit time on everything to 30 minutes a day.
