“Stories Behind the Stones: Burial Practices and Headstone Interpretation”
Presented by: Lisa Oberg
MJoin us for a look at cemeteries and their history including the types of cemeteries, architecture, common symbols, and some of the mourning and funeral rituals from U.S. and around the world. As our views change, the role of cemeteries in
society is changing, as well. We’ll also explore the future of remembering loved ones and how to document their final resting place/disposition.
