      PROGRAM: This will be a presentation by Bev Peaslee, Chairperson, Heart O' Wisconsin Genealogical Society.

“PROGRAM: “Carved in Stone: Exploring Gravestone Symbolism and Their Meanings”

Aside from names, birthdates, and death dates, gravestones are often decorated with symbols. Understanding these symbols will give additional clues to your ancestors’ lives. Bev will help us learn to “read” a cemetery. Give yourself a new genealogical adventure the next time you walk through a cemetery by being able to understand those symbols you see on your ancestors’ gravestones!
