Event Description:
In this overview of Arkansas cemeteries, Abby Burnett, an independent researcher and author who studies Arkansas cemeteries, will discuss tombstones, grave carvings, symbolism and unusual types of information found on 19th century markers. While some are fairly simple to interpret, it’s not always easy to figure out the significance of others. In this two session course Abby will focus on the extraction of information from tombstones while sharing tips on how to read and correctly clean a stone.
