Genealogical Society explores FdL cemetery

There is an article in The Reporter (Fond du Lac, Wisconsin), by Andrew Hellpap, Genealogical Society explores FdL cemetery, about a local genealogy society giving a hands-on tour to its members of one of the largest area cemeteries – the Rienzi Cemetery (30,000+ people)

Excerpt from the article:

Dave and Becky Krug of Fond du Lac participated in the tour because they are interested in cemeteries and genealogy.

Genealogy gives a wonderful vision of a community’s history, Dave Krug said.

“I grew up here. It’s (the cemetery) been here the whole time, but you don’t know what’s here unless you dig into it,” he said.

I’m not sure if the pun was intended.
