February Monthly Meeting

 

Digging in Deeper at the Cemetery

Featuring Dan Fuller, Events and Volunteer Coordinator with Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum in St. Louis

Saturday, 11 February 2023, 10:00 a.m.

Please Note: This meeting will be held at the Grant’s View branch of the St. Louis County Library. A link to a Google map with directions is below.

 

Graveyards were the standard before the rural movement took cemeteries outside city limits and embraced the natural environment. Today, cemeteries are not only focused on the death of an individual, they are focused on when that individual arrived at the cemetery. Use of receiving tombs and the difference between public lots/private lots can give more details concerning one’s search than some realize. Iconography can also play a key role in pointing to important elements in an ancestor’s life.
