About This Show

(Originally broadcast 09/02/2008) - Judy Russell had no idea that trying to put names with faces in old family photos would lead her to an overgrown Quaker cemetery, a book and some 300 family members - including a friend. A casual query to a genealogical internet listserv back in 1996 started her on a journey which eventually led her and acquaintance Pam Armstrong to an overgrown cemetery in Newberry, SC, where members of a Revolutionary-era Quaker community, and their descendants, were buried.

She joins Dr. Edgar to talk about the restoration of the cemetery, the uniting of living descendants of that early community to reconstruct and preserve their family's history.
