Summer is the season when UK family historians hit the road, and one of the places they head to is the churchyards where their ancestors are buried. This summer, grave concerns are being raises at the number of sheep and cows being allowed to roam over the final resting sites of our forebears.
"I think it is totally disrespectful to those buried there," writes FHA on the Your Family Tree online forum. "Those churchyards are obviously heavily fouled by the animals and it makes it very difficult for ancestor hunters and those wishing to pay their respects to walk on this disgusting mess!"
You can read more about this "problem" and offer your comments also in the web site for Your Family Tree magazine. Look at http://www.yourfamilytreemag.co.uk/page/yft?entry=cows_sheep_the_enemy
