Fitness at a National Cemetery

To know me is to know that health and fitness are important to me. I eat right, work out six mornings a week, and walk an average of six miles a day. But squats? Ugh!

If you know me you also know I struggle to climb my family tree during the summer months. Who wants to sit in front of a computer when you could be outside walking around a lake or down a wooded trail? What’s a genealogist to do?

Visit a cemetery of course!

 Fort Snelling National Cemetery Avenue of Flags


Fort Snelling National Cemetery
Avenue of Flags

Husband and I didn’t start our recent trip to Fort Snelling National Cemetery with exercise in mind. We went to check on my dad’s gravesite, pull weeds and maybe take a picture or two (hundred) for Find A Grave.

Fort Snelling is one of the 131 national cemeteries in 40 states and Puerto Rico maintained by the VA’s National Cemetery Administration. If you’ve ever visited a national cemetery, you know the markers are placed at precise distances from one another front to back and side to side.

After visiting with my dad for a bit, Husband and I drove to another section of the cemetery. I boldly stated I planned to take photos of one entire row across and a second row on the return trip. These particular headstones look best photographed straight on, so my technique was to:

  1. step to the left
  2. step together
  3. stoop and shoot
  4. stand
  5. repeat steps 1-4

286 times! I had to lean on the last 50 or so headstones just to stand up and I could barely walk back to the car. My legs hurt for the next two days!

After my muscles stopped crying, I realized what a phenomenal way this had been to combine two things I love, staying fit and memorializing those who have passed.

According to Find A Grave, only 23% of the 207, 902 memorials posted for Fort Snelling have headstone photos.

I’m already doing squats to prepare for my next trip.

Daddy in the 1940 Census

It’s hard to imagine my dad as a little kid.

I’ve seen pictures. I’ve heard stories.

But it’s the documents created during his lifetime that give me the most insight into what made Daddy the person he was.

1940 US Census IL Mueller, William E

1940 US Census IL Mueller, William E

My dad was born during the Depression, the firstborn of four children. His father left when he was quite young, having “run off with Maury’s wife”. After a messy divorce, my grandmother, Frances Lois Mangels married a man my father adored. So much so he wanted to change his surname from Mueller to Brenke.

So imagine my surprise when I saw the name of the family’s 1940 boarder:

It's Grandpa Brenke!

It’s Grandpa Brenke!
