Your family may have talked about this situation concerning the re-location of a loved ones burial. This may sound morbid or foolish, but many families move from "home" and want loved ones buried where they live today. There are many reasons why a family may want to do this as this article suggests.
Joy Neighbors blog site is one of my favorites - A Grave Interest. This article is called "Remains of the Day - Relocating a Body." She points out all of the things that are involved, plus cost considerations for each. She does make a great suggestion to consider as a possible alternate solution. Great article and a great blog!

Just found a link to this article on Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter (EOGN) points to an easy way to carry your genealogy with you without having a computer. Use your Kindle or other electronic devices.
Here is part of the short article that has several links for more information: GenBlog by
"A few months ago, the company that developed Families [designed to work with the software Legacy Family Tree] released GedFamilies (Android, iOS, $7.99). From what I can tell (based on the product description, screenshots, and the “test drive” I took on Amazon) it is nearly identical to Families. The big difference between the two apps is that Families only works with Legacy Family Tree databases, while GedFamilies works with a GEDCOM file. That basically means that if you use ANY genealogy database software that can generate a GEDCOM 5.5.1 file, you can use the GedFamilies app and have your family tree on your Kindle Fire. Just like the Families app, you will need to download and install a syncing program on your computer."
