Tuesday Trivia

Winter is approaching and travel across I-90 will be more limited but you might want to add a visit to Roslyn to your next year’s Must-Do List…….. if you’re a genealogist,t that is.

Roslyn was a booming coal-mining town about the turn of the century and men from all over the world came for the work. These men belonged to various ethnic and social clubs and as they died, they were buried in “their” portion of the cemetery. There are 26 such divisions in the Roslyn cemeteries and it is SO INTERESTING to walk among the various ethnic artwork and way of placing grave markers. There is even a Druid section! Better plan a stop and see for yourself. Google “Roslyn cemeteries.”

    You are so right! We have been there, a few years ago, always planned to go back!! You do need to give yourself some time –the cemetery is so interesting, even if you may not have family buried there. (not a quick one shop stop!!) Well worth the time however. Might want to have camera, paper and pencil handy.
    Thanks for the reminder of this interesting cemetery!!
