Interesting about Franco, John. We must note that the winners write the history. Cheers, BT
John, I was most interested in the headstones. One winter some years ago, being in Key West, Florida, and a budding family historian, I went to visit the cemetery there. I saw headstones much like those in the video. But I also saw stones which said things like : A Lifelong Fan of Julio Inglases, and I’m JUST Resting My Eyes. Cheers, BT
important article by The Conversation. As are most because of the source. This conversation about historical information, well documented, Thanks for posting it, John.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tombstone video. Some of them are real gems especially the one that said: “All dressed up and no place to go”. Ha! Ha!
