"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Looking for Another Cemetery Preservation Workshop to Attend in Ohio?

Sharing cemetery preservation workshop news:

A cemetery preservation workshop is being scheduled for Saturday, November 8th, 2014 -- but a few more confirmed attendees are needed for the arrangements to be finalized.
The hands-on cemetery preservation workshop will be conducted at the Salem Baptist Cemetery in Guernsey County, Ohio near Salesville.

Below are more details from Catherine Anderson of Hope's Gravestone Care:

"Since the date is a bit closer, I wanted to ask who might be interested in a class (beginner/intermediate) in Salesville, Ohio on Saturday, November 8th.

Trying to get an idea if we'd have enough people for a class.
I'd be the instructor for the class. 

A survey would be sent in advance, so I'm certain to cover everyone's questions/areas of interest.

Not sure what the cost would be - likely $40/person for the full day (would include lunch)."
Please contact me if interested:
