Hunting for an ancestor’s gravestone can be an exciting adventure or a frustrating series of dead ends. When we find our ancestor’s gravestone, we often are in awe, as it can give important birth, death, and marriage dates. To provide this information, cemeteries need to be preserved and be taken care of. Join cemetery expert Krista Horrocks as she explains how the gravestones and historical documentation on cemeteries provide important genealogical information, how Ohio law treats cemeteries (all 14,637 of them), and cemetery preservation. Advance registration recommended. To register, visit ohiohistory.org/genealogy, email email@example.com, or call 800.686.1541.
