As I left the prayer chapel in Helferskirchen, I wondered where the cemetery was located. After all on Find A Grave.com, I found the listing of persons buried in the Katholische Maria Himmelfahrt cemetery which included a number of my ancestors.
I looked down a street and saw a cemetery. This must be my lucky day! We walked down the street and walked through the cemetery. The cemetery looked new, like it was created in the 1980's not the 1700's.
Whenever I visit a cemetery in one of my ancestral lands, first, I look for any of my known ancestors. I have yet to find any of them from the 1700 and 1800's. Then I take (and also ask my traveling companions) to take photos of all the gravestones with specific surnames.
I found graves for the following people (who may be related to me) in the Helferskirchen cemetery --
