Backroads, Old Houses, and Cemeteries

Recently, I have started traveling backroads - exploring local surroundings - in search of remnants of history. I have decided to start filming these travels and share them with the world. I find that the roads less traveled are quite peaceful and show a glimpse into the past and display the natural beauty of the South. Being a genealogist, I am naturally pulled towards cemeteries. I want to see who is buried there, and wonder who these people were. Where did they live? Where did they come from? Can I find their former land or house? I want to document these places and show them to anyone who may be interested. Perhaps you have ancestors from these places, but you live far away and can not visit them. Perhaps you want to see the area that your ancestors lived. 

This is why I started posting videos to the Kindred Roots YouTube channel. I welcome anyone that is interested in these things to subscribe to the channel. Please leave a comment. Let me know if you have any more information to add. Are you related to anyone in these cemeteries, or anyone who lived in an old house I have filmed, and have photos to share? Please do! This can be a collaborative effort to memorialize those who came before us. 

If anyone would like to make a donation to help support my travels, you can send donations via CashApp @ $KindredRoots352
