Cemeteries contain an abundance of historical information, but those stories can disappear when cemeteries are in disarray. The speakers will discuss cemetery preservation and maintenance, as well as how to safely clean markers and monuments. Participants will learn how to establish a cemetery "friends group" and how to build relationships with cemetery governing agencies.
