For those of you who have never beaten your head against brick walls
for decades, trying to find information on your ancestors, you probably
won't understand how this could be exciting, but it is.

Today I received confirmation from a cemetery in Chicago that proved a
woman buried there is my great-great-grandmother, Margaret Hinchey.
I've only been looking for her for several decades.

I found her buried in the same lot as her son, who she preceded in
death. It's an unmarked grave. They were poor. I don't know why, but
since I started doing family research, it's been important for me to
know where my family is buried, so I know I've actually found them.
Finding records isn't enough. I need to actually find them.

And I have now found my great-great grandmother. That's pretty
exciting. : )
