Blog Highlighted

I am honored to have my blog highlighted by Laurie over at The Graveyard Detective. I am inspired by so many other cemetery bloggers, including Laurie. Thanks, Laurie!

The photos used in my header and footer are from the historic Linwood Cemetery in my hometown of Columbus, GA. I love to walk this cemetery when I go home to visit.

I am captivated by the symbolism found on headstones. You see cemeteries in a new way when you stand before a grave and silently ask "what am I being told about you?".

Through my AGS membership I have come to know Richard Waterhouse. He shares his love of symbolism through a monthly newsletter. I had the opportunity to interview him for our genealogical society quarterly. You can read a copy on his web site. Click on the Symbols in the Cemetery article. You will also find his newsletter back issues on his site too.

Have you visited a cemetery today?
