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."

Upcoming Hands-On Cemetery Preservation Workshop Scheduled to be held at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio - Saturday, September 9, 2017 - 9 a.m. to Noon - Hosted by Custom GraveSite Care of Central Ohio

"We are less than two weeks away from our workshop and training at Green Lawn Cemetery. We have one "definite" response and twenty one "interested". 

To help us to be prepared I ask that those who are interested choose "definite" or "not attending". We are looking forward to meeting you!"

"Register for this inexpensive class with Custom Gravesite Care of Central Ohio to learn how to clean stone markers without causing damage or decreasing their life span - and as an exciting bonus - you will be working on the markers of a very prominent (dare I say "Presidential"?) Green Lawn family!"

"Would you like to learn the proper way to clean and maintain your loved one's headstone? 

Join us for a "hands on" workshop. Meet in the cemetery office parking lot at 9:00 a.m. sharp. Maximum class size is twenty (20) people. 

Registration fee: $10.00 cash/check/money order (payable the day of training)"
