Object Collections and the Family Historian
Have you driven by a cemetery and seen the headstones off their bases and scattered throughout the cemetery and thought “Somebody should restore this cemetery.” Diane Druback and her husband did just that restoring the cemetery of his third great grandparents. Come and hear the fascinating story of how they used genealogical records, patents, track books, and plat maps to locate the Lowe Cemetery. Once they found it, they encountered cows using it as a pasture, which had knocked down all the tombstones. Discover their detective work as they repaired the headstones and matched them to their original locations.
Speaker: Diane Druback.
