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."

Sharing information about Cemetery Transcription Software

Click on title to read about a Cemetery Transcription Software program that has been used and tested and proven to be worthwhile.

Here are some remarks about it from Ralph Lowell Coleman, Jr. who used it for Maple Grove Cemetery in North Lewisburg, Ohio:

"They still have the original books in Rush Township, but they now also have a big binder for Maple Grove and another for Woodstock which have schematic pages in document protectors, arranged in Square sequential order.  Makes it easy to see and decipher what is sometimes unreadable in the original books.
I then took this information and created my database, using the CemEditor Pro-Version that I recommended.  Lots of keyboarding, and linking of photos, but it has proven to have been well-worth the time. 
The CemEditor software provides such great features, and is so easy to use."
