click on image to enlarge for better viewing

Baltimore has always been a city of immigrants. Diversity being a large part of her charm from the founding in 1729 to the present.

My ancestors arrived during the late to mid 1880's from Germany, England, Russia, Bohemia and Poland. Many of these relatives are buried in historical cemeteries around the city.

One cemetery being Green Mount Cemetery one of the earliest garden cemeteries in the United States. The cemetery was officially dedicated on July 13, 1839. Many of Baltimore's earliest immigrant are buried within the walls. Many being her first leaders and philanthropists.

Several years ago a co-worker and I took the Green Mount Cemetery guided tour. If you ever get the opportunity, this cemetery is a must visit.
