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."

My Thoughts about "Savings Graves":
I personally feel that "Saving Graves" is a great on-line resource that is unfortunately too often overlooked and sadly under appreciated for its sheer volume of cemetery / gravestone related information that is categorized in a convenient to use format.

I consider "Saving Graves" as being a 'go-to', 'how-to' & 'all-in-one' website for cemetery preservation and gravestone conservation that is akin to what "Cyndi's List" is to "all things genealogy"-- which, by the way, also includes Cemetery / Gravestone related links and Ohio links!!  
In fact, "Saving Graves" IS on Cyndi's List
