June 20th – Talk to people

I am interested in people. They fascinate me. My wife thinks I’m just nosey, but I dispute that.

Today’s photo is of a person taking photo’s of gravestones in a churchyard. I hear the question going through your mind ‘Why?’.

Well, after sticking up a conversation with this charming lady, in turns out that she is helping her daughter’s business, which is in genealogy. She has taken over 50,000 photos of gravestones that are legible, and these are being catalogued to help people interested in their ancestry, to look at gravestones when tracing their family trees.

Apparently, lock down has forced an annual convention online, which has been a massive success, as people from all parts of the globe attended, not just those living in the UK.
