Have you ever wondered what the various symbols on a gravestone may mean? Could they be telling you about that person? It's quite possible!  Cemeteries can provide a wealth of information, if you know what to look for. Learn about the symbolism behind many gravestone carvings and how to properly conduct research in cemeteries.
