I invite any interested in tombstones & cemeteries in general, to come and
join the TOMBSTONES-L Mail List. I created this list as an aid in my own
genealogy research and to help others with the same interest. As a member of
this list I'll also participate in the discussions as fits my needs and to
This list is for anyone interested in the history of tombstones, or anything
at all pertaining to them. If you have a project related to the topic that
may be a part of a historical society, please feel free to post a message
about it to the list. Members of Historical & genealogy societies are welcome
to join this list from all states & counties.
Topic: is for the discussion of Tombstones and anything pertaining to them.
Discussion of types, materials used for tombstones past and present,
tombstone inscriptions, use of information for genealogy, preservation of old
tombstones & monuments, also to the related topic of cemeteries in general.
I hope that you will join us and help make this list grow and become active
and helpful to all. I am not an expert, but wanted to provide a forum for
this topic and also to the related topic of cemeteries in general. I hope
this can be a fun and great learning experience for all genealogists both
seasoned and new.
Begin thinking about your favorite cemetery stories for the month of October.
All month long it would be nice to hear your own stories about some strange,
odd or scary experiences while looking for your ancestor's tombstones. You
can start posting these beginning Oct. 1st through Halloween. Please be sure
that they are your own stories and spread a little "Great Pumpkin" cheer for
the rest of us to enjoy!
If you have been readying yourself for that trip to the cemetery to do some
transcribing, please feel free to use my transcription sheet and print it out
for your use.
