Every new Genealogist has a list of time discoveries and on a Wednesday evening in August, I found my first obituaries on my great uncle Herbert. This is the first one I found in the New York Times. I noticed the cemetery name and it sounded familiar. I checked out my grandparents, my grandfather William Chaplin is a brother to Herbert and Bertram. Both my grandparents are buried in the same cemetery, William and his wife Minnie Elizabeth.

Now to find Bertram's Obit or something and to do a cemetery search. When I shared this with my cousins in England one of them wrote back I'll never think of Canada Dry in the same way.
Neither will I, maybe I should have one in remembrance of
Great Uncle Herbert.
One small step for me and my ancestors
