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."

Tombstone photos Group on "Flickr"

I'll be the first to admit that I am not an expert on "Flickr"!
I did, however, locate some tombstone photographs for Ohio cemeteries under the "Graves, Tombs and Cemeteries" Search. I also typed in "Ohio cemeteries" in the white block to the right and pressed the "search" button for the results.
"1,474 results" are shown, per the first screen I viewed.
A sort by "relevant, recent and interesting" is available.
I also noted "discussions" as a place to "click on" and check out.
Browsing through the contributor submissions on "Flickr" just might yield a tombstone photograph you are seeking if you get the hang of it!
