Click on title to link to a great story in the "Newark Advocate" (June 18, 2010) about the upcoming "AGS" Conference to be held in Granville June 22 through the 27.
Beth Santore deserves a huge thank you for her role in bringing the AGS Yearly Conference to Ohio.
Thank you Beth!!
Beth hosts the website: Graveaddiction.com
Quoting Beth from the final paragraph in the news story:
"I think learning about the different reasons people study gravestones will give people more reasons to look at them," she said. "If we can get more people interested in cemeteries, they will be interested in taking care of them."
The key word is interest ! Without it, Ohio will lose more history to the elements of time, weather, vandalism, and most sadly, neglect at its burial grounds.
