Prompt: Document a genealogy event with photos and share in your blog. Show others how much fun your local luncheon can be, or how your genealogy field trip turned into a landslide of books. Don’t forget to get permission before posting photos of others.
First up was the Museum of Funeral Customs. Right now, the museum is only open to group tours. It was a neat place with a variety of exhibits showing the many sides of funerals.

Our last adventure was the Lincoln’s Ghost Tour in downtown Springfield. It was a neat tour, showing many of the Lincoln sites and filled with history.
