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."

Featuring a "Columbus Dispatch" story about Beth Santore who will be at Green Lawn Cemetery on July 9, 2011 at 11:00a.m. presenting information about the Association for Gravestone Studies -- Beth founded the Ohio Chapter of AGS!

It is my pleasure to share a link (click on title) to a story featured in today's "The Columbus Dispatch" about Beth Santore of Columbus, Ohio. 

Beth has an important presentation coming up on Saturday, July 9, 2011, beginning at 11:00a.m. at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus.
Beth also hosts the website Grave Addiction, which I have long enjoyed browsing for cemetery and gravestone information and photographs.
Quoting from the "Dispatch" story today:
"Santore, who works in information technology at Nationwide, will share her knowledge at:
11 a.m. Saturday in Huntington Chapel at Green Lawn Cemetery, 1000 Greenlawn Ave.
The talk is part of the free "First Saturday" series of programs (moved to the second Saturday this month)."

"She will discuss the National Association for Gravestone Studies, an organization of people who share her fascination with cemeteries and their monuments. She founded the Ohio Chapter and is on the national board of directors."
Thank you, Beth, for sharing your knoweldge of gravestone carvings with us!
