Language of the Cemetery

January 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Language of the Cemetery

Each cemetery has its own language, and tombstones can tell us a great deal about its residents. On January 4, genealogical researcher Nancy Ottman will lead a discussion of tombstone symbols and their meanings- – valuable information for family research and tombstone study. As part of our First Saturday programming, the presentation is free and will take place at the historic Huntington Chapel near the center of Green Lawn Cemetery.

Nancy has conducted genealogical research for more than 30 years and has spoken to numerous genealogical and historical societies. She is a member of the Association for Gravestone Studies, Ohio Genealogical Society, Palatines to America German Genealogical Society, and the Kansas Genealogical Society. Recently her work was published in Your Genealogy Today.
