Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated 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."

Ohio Genealogical Society Chapters on OGS website

Don't forget to check the Ohio Genealogical Society's Chapter web pages for cemetery information that might help you locate a burial site of your ancestor.

Information on these sites is updated periodically and in most cases you can contact a chapter officer for further information on such topics as tombstone inscription publications, county libraries and museums, or available local researchers.
