Thielta99, I have a printed walking tour of the cemetery that, in the hands of your kids, will make your tour more of a scavenger hunt that is fun for them. It will also ensure that you see some of the more interesting parts and will provide a lot of info that the adults will find interesting. I just need to figure out how to get it to you!
