Hi there!

Would you like to…

… learn the meaning of cemetery symbols?

… discover the stories behind unique graves?
… see funerary art from all over the world?
… keep up with cemeteries news?
… read informative articles about historic cemeteries?

If so, you will love Cemetery News, a twice-monthly newsletter that covers all those topics and more!

Sign up for Cemetery News!

Sound good? If the above sounds interesting to you, sign up for Cemetery News, my twice-monthly newsletter that delves into all these topics, and much more.

My wish for you: With Cemetery News, I hope to deepen your appreciation for historic cemeteries, connect with like-minded folks, share research, and inspire you to explore burial grounds near you.

I “get” you:

Let’s face it: Not everyone GETS why exploring historic cemeteries can be so rewarding. Do some of your friends and family think you’re a weirdo?

I can relate. Haha! You can always hit “reply” to my newsletters to start a conversation with me.

The Cemetery News newsletter is an easy way to learn and connect with like-minded souls. Let’s have fun together!

Thank you gift: Free Book

Thank you gift: When you sign up for Cemetery News, you can download a free book. This thank you gift is a guide I created to explain the symbolism of hands on tombstones. (That’s the book cover you see above.)

Did you know that hands can symbolize many different things, including:

secret societies,
and even sudden death?

Starting point: The symbolism of hands is a great place to start when learning about historic cemetery symbols. (In fact, that’s how I got my husband interested in the topic!)
