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 From the "Marietta Times" - March 31, 2018 - The Noble County Genealogy Chapter Seeks Help Updating Their Cemetery Books

Sharing this announcement:

"A cemetery inscription discussion will be held at 11 a.m. April 7 at the Caldwell Public annex. 

The event is open to those in the community who have a desire to help the Noble County Genealogy Chapter update the cemetery books and walk the cemeteries to see the added stones there. 

Those interested can help by typing up the existing books to make them digital, by going to the cemetery or by proofreading the typed product. Discussion will also be about symbols and other items found on the tombstones that need to be added to the books."
