Vacation and Research

The other day I spent a wonderful day going through the old files at the Cass County Indiana Clerk's office.  I found some probate files, quite a few marriage licenses, one divorce, and a lot of dust.  I will be posting some of the information I found as I get it processed. 

Today I drove to Illinois and went grave searching at Concordia Cemetery in Forest Park.  I took some new pictures of my Great Grandfathers grave and looked up the graves of Meta and Charles Gollnick,  On the way out of the cemetery I saw another Gollnick headstone so I took some pictures of that headstone also.
