I hope this is a sign of things to come in 2013. I found this newspaper clipping about the burial of Ferdinand Gustav Buring my 4x great Uncle.
Finding out about Ferdinand Gustav is helping me find out more about our Buring ancestors in Germany who have been a big brick wall in my research. It’s gradually coming down now though, piece by piece.
Dropsy is the reason given for Ferdinand’s death but without further details it is unknown whether this was a heart condition or something else. I’m hoping to get a photo of his headstone, if he had one.
