The cemetery of Witteveen

On many genealogy blogs, Tuesday is Tombstone Tuesday - bloggers share photos of their ancestors' tombs, or otherwise write cemetery related blog posts. On Tombstone Tuesdays, Trace your Dutch roots posts articles related to Dutch cemeteries, burial practices, or individual graves. Today: A photo impression of the cemetery of Witteveen.

Witteveen is a small village in the rural province Drenthe. It was founded in 1926, for laborers from Dutch cities who settled here for work procurement projects. I recently visited their cemetery, on a quiet spot just outside the village. Below I share a photo impression of this beautiful rural Dutch cemetery.
