This is my very first Tombstone Tuesday post! Last weekend my family and traveled to the Portland, Oregon area to visit my in-laws. My sister-in-law is a huge FindAGrave fan and together we had tracked down where her great-grandparents were buried. While at the cemetery, we each took several hundred grave photos to add to the cemetery's FindAGrave pages.

These graves are of my mother-in-law's maternal grandparents. You can read more about the MARTINs and LUKEs by clicking on the links.

Congratulations on a successful little trip into my area -- I do claim all of Oregon, tho I live in southern Oregon. Nice pictures, and the citations are helpful, readable and interesting. A good example for my first foray into FindaGrave picture-taking.
