Spotlighting The Association of Graveyard Rabbits

Click on title or Logo below to link to the home page of
 "The Association of Graveyard Rabbits"
I encourage anyone with any interest in cemeteries to view this website (and check back often!) and follow the different blogs it promotes. 

Currently, there are seven Graveyard Rabbit blogs that are dedicated to covering a variety of topics related to Ohio cemeteries. 
Most also offer stories about the lives of those who were buried in Ohio among other topics of interest relating to Ohio's cemeteries including gravestone photographs.
The sites include: "A Grave Concern", "Gravestoned", "Graveyard Rabbit of Central Ohio", "Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay", "Great Black Swamp Graveyard Rabbit", "Strolling Through Cemeteries", and this blog. 

"The Graveyard Rabbit" is alive and well and 'he' dwells in every cemetery we research or visit!! 
Now, this Graveyard Rabbit organization and its website presents us with a unique opportunity to learn just how important every graveyard rabbit is.
