"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."

You're Invited to View the Updates to Pages and Links

I invite you to take a moment and check out the new changes on the blog.

There are several revised website links,  particularly those on the right side bar of the blog, that have been streamlined. The 'new look' should better help you with your search for resources that will fit your specific gravestone / cemetery preservation issues.

Of important interest under the "Pages" heading are the updated mission statements that include personal background details for two Ohio gravestone preservation businesses: "Gravestone Guardians of Ohio" - owner, Mark Morton; and "Respectful Interment Preservations" - owner, Jay Russell.  I think you'll find it easier to read their biographies and locate their contact information.  

There are more details about both "Gravestone Guardians of Ohio" and "Respectful Interment Preservations," in the revised links for their individual sites now placed under the heading: 

 "OHIO BASED GRAVESTONE PRESERVATION BUSINESSES"  

Please note, Mark Morton has added several new links on his "Gravestone Guardians of Ohio" blog site. Take a peek and check them out!  

The links on  Mark's "Like Minded People and Pages,"  I feel are especially exciting to explore.  Included are direct links to new "History and Genealogy Facebook Pages" that are Ohio county specific.  You may wish to join some and interact with others researching ancestors in your Ohio county of interest. 

Here are a few other links for gravestone or cemetery specific "Facebook Pages":

Thank you, Mark, for the beautiful picture which links to "Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in Ohio"


And, the link for "R.I.P.":

I hope these updates will be a benefit that moves you closer to realizing your gravestone and cemetery preservation goals.  

We may explore those almost forgotten gravesites alone, but it is our working with other "like minded" people that gives us the best hope to achieve our goals to protect and preserve the cherished burial sites we respect.
