Where did I go?

For anyone who has happened upon this blog ...

First, thanks for stopping by!

Second, sorry I wasn't here!

I've been focusing my time and efforts on my website and Facebook group, so please join me on those sites if you're interesting in cemeteries.

Best to you!

Just published a new book!

While it's not prosey, it is helpful. It's called the "Cemetery Journal," and it's a great tool for you to use to log your cemetery research in while you make your way through the graveyard.

From the back cover: "If you spend your free time in cemeteries, you’re probably a taphophile (someone with a passion for cemeteries). And if you’re a taphophile, the odds are good that you enjoy researching them. From genealogists to historical researchers, this journal will help you keep track of all your cemetery information, grave by grave and cemetery by cemetery."

Check it out at: http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/cemetery-journal/16691555

Let me know what you think!

Do you love cemeteries? Do you have a video camera?

If you answered "yes" to both these questions, then check out my video announcing the contest with your chance to have your own cemetery show hosted on www.TheCemeteryClub.com. And, yes, my spokesperson is a puppet (cemetery people have to have a sense of humor).

New cemetery PSA

I just finished a public service announcement on cemeteries and posted it on YouTube. This is my first use of iMovie in a few years. I didn't forget everything!

The cemetery featured in the video is Chippiannock Cemetery in Rock Island, Illinois. If you haven't visited it in person, you really should.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
