Where's the oldest location you have been where you have ancestors buried? I.E. "A cemetary from the 1700s"

Ay, this is a story!
I got the Mala in 1992 when i was no Buddhist. I did some Hindu-meditation that time, but we didn't use malas.
My husband visited some tibetean buddhist pujas and lessons in a group of the "diamond way" of Ole Nydahl. Somehow they persuaded him to take refuge. So he took it, but he wasn't really convinced inside.
One week later he made up his mind and in a momentum of defiance he was about to throw the things he has been given at the refuge ceremnony into the garbage. The mala and the Puja-text were already inside of the garbage can as i jumped to rescue them. Somehow it was obvious for me that these things were blessed and that it was an impossible deed to throw them away.
So they were in my drawer for years. The Mala is from fair Sandalwood. In 2008 i started buddhist meditation and began to use it for counting Mantras. As time passed it lost it's wonderful smell and some beads broke or split a little bit. It became dirty from using and i washed it sometimes. The thread got thin at one point and it is near to tear.
Now I don't want to break it and i put it back into a drawer as a memento.
I've got a new mala now.
