Exploring almost forgotten gravesites in OhioDedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio
"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

To paraphrase Susan:
Susan is the Head of Reference and Adult Collection Services, and Michele is the Head of Children's Services. They started doing these videos and programs to mainly assist individuals who would not be able to visit Holmes County cemeteries and also for ones who plan to visit.
The videos show the terrain of the cemeteries so that they know what to expect when they get there. However, the real reason they did the videos is to have an excuse to traipse around cemeteries because they both love them. : )
