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."

Happy New Year! -- Thank you for following my blog

***Happy New Year!*** 

Extending my thanks to the followers of this blog for -- you guessed it -- Following!  
Thank you for comments made and thoughts shared.  It has been so nice hearing from some of you over the past year. 

I hope to learn of more cemetery preservation projects in Ohio as they come about and rely on others to help provide information when they learn of a cemetery workshop or restoration project. 
So, if you learn of any news relating to a cemetery being improved in any way, please feel free to contact me and pass it along so it can be announced to others. 
Thank you & Happy New Year!!
Clicking on the title will take you to the website "OhioBar.org" and their page "State Law Regulates Most Ohio Cemeteries."  
Let's hope more legislation is passed in Ohio that benefits our cemeteries; particularly our pioneer cemeteries that are the most vulnerable.
