Melrose FamiliesI am the sixth generation in my family to have lived there, but currently do not live in Melrose. I enjoy returning and visiting the same places that my families lived. Listening to the stories my parents shared about Melrose. (Yes, they grew up down the street from each other.) I visit Wyoming Cemetery where five generations of my family are buried. Studying the history of Melrose plays an important part in my family’s history. I invite all that have families that have lived in Melrose to share their family history also. Share a link so we connect our families together to a community.
