The Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is a widely celebrated traditional Mexican holiday honoring family & friends who have gone before us. Begin the morning with an ancestry class talking about your own family history and how you can find out information. It will be presented by the President of the Downriver Genealogy Chapter. She will give you pointers and give you a good head start on your own project. Visit the Burton Library to get another foot hold. This is an introduction as Genealogy searches can last a life time. Also from the Past, take a look at the Historical Society in Downtown Detroit. They always have changing exhibits that are extremely interesting as well as strolling through the streets of Old Detroit. Take time out for Lunch at a Mexican Restaurant that will no doubt be decorated for the occasion. Then continue the quest for the title of the day. Visit Woodmere Cemetery with a guide who can tell you about a lot of people who are buried there.
