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 Library"
"Cemetery Vertical Files"

"The following is a list of transcriptions of Ohio cemeteries that are found in the Ohio cemetery vertical files, arranged by county, at The Ohio Genealogical Society Library, Mansfield. These may or may not have been published in other sources. Volunteers did not record cemeteries in these files if they had been photocopied from published articles in the OGS periodicals OGS Quarterly (formerly The Report and Ohio Records and Pioneer Families. The two volunteers who completed 99% of the project were Frances Baker and Don Wenner. Typed by Tom Neel, Librarian."
