"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."

Today, I am spotlighting "Cyndi's List" for our purposes of researching the topic of Ohio Cemeteries.  

A few good general categories to start your "Cyndi's List" cemetery search are:
