Burial Site Sleuthing
I heard this great story on NPR this morning (Saturday) about folks working on finding the burial sites of Negro League baseball players.
From NPR's website: "Dink Mothell played in the Negro Leagues for 15 years. He died in 1980, and his gravesite has been just a patch of grass, no nameplate, marker or anything. On Saturday, a ceremony will at last grant Mothell's gravesite a tombstone, the result of efforts by two men to locate the remains of former Negro Leaguers."
Here's a link to the story:

As far as I know, I don't have any African American ancestry...but who knows what I might find someday. I just really enjoyed hearing the story and thought I would share!
