Snowbound cemeteries are now cleared for visiting and genealogical
sleuthing!

Be sure to include your camera, hedgeclippers, notebook, pencils, whisk
broom and Rabbi Joshua Segal's "Field Guide to Visiting a Jewish
Cemetery"....the quintessential tool for unlocking tombstone inscriptions,
decoding dates and deciphering many of the more common inscriptions.
For those who don't get the book but will go to cemeteries, I would like to
add, and MOST importantly (I always warn of this) protection >from poison
ivy. Long sleeves, pants tucked in socks, gloves, a vial of Dawn (the
reaction to poison ivy is caused by an oil so any degreaser is a good
idea). It stays on your clothing so be careful when removing same. Poison
ivy can develop into way more than a rash. There was just a news story
that global warming could be making it even more virulent.
