I had seen this book in a library and used it for a summer, then when I wanted it again the next year, it had been sold at the annual book sale! Luckily I found it on Amazon and have used it frequently since, and have loaned it to others. It is a great book for doing genealogy, learning more about burial and cemetery customs, and just for enjoyment. The author gives many good tips about exploring cemeteries, cemetery etiquette, resources for finding more information when doing research and genealogy, and the writing is interesting and easy to read. I was able to scan some of the pictures to use in a Power Point presentation and they showed up well. Many of the topics that were covered were similar to what we were trying to share about our small local pre-civil war cemetery. This is one of the best books for real hands-on research and work on the topic.

One of the most useful and fascinating books I have on cemetery research. Whether you are using this book to trace your family history or to pursue an interest in historic cemeteries, it is an excellent book filled with useful information. It is filled with information on Colonial and Victorian era funeral and burial customs and cemetery symbolism. Of particular interest to genealogists, is the section on how to research death records.

All Genealogists can benefit from having this work on their working bookshelf. Well written and readable it provides information valuable to genealogists who do field work---and those that don't. Too large to carry into the field, its usefulness lies in educating the reader and in being a reference work. Some will only skim this work, but I found that difficult to do as I was always getting sucked into something that proved of great interest. I applaud the research and fine writing that went into creating this scholarly work.

I am thoroughly enjoying this book. I've nearly finished it and I have learned lots of helpful researching tips and been entertained along the way. There are helpful notes in the margins alerting the reader to helpful points in the text such as websites, other written sources, tips, etc. A very good read and well worth my investment.

Arrived on time. This is still on my genealogy reading list.

I never thought I needed a a book to tell me how to walk through a cemetery and gather information on the stones. Once I began reading this book and taking it with me on my cemetery walks I discovered that it was one of the most helpful genealogy books in print. I began to understand the meaning behind a lot of the stones and the carvings on them (which I always thought was purely decorative). The only problem is, now I must go back and search through cemetery's I have already covered in order to decipher the etching 'codes.' Those that do genealogy research in cemeteries will understand when I say that it should be great fun!

Add me to your list of fans of this book. If you are interested in researching, or just visiting, cemeteries you should own this book. It's informative and fun. I especially enjoyed the section on veterans' headstones and how to tell the difference in war eras by the design of the headstone. Interpreting the symbols and designs of headstones was also intriguing. Read this book before walking through a cemetery and it will open your eyes to a whole new world of knowledge, understanding and appreciation.
What a great one- stop resource! Wonderful for genealogists and fascinating to just read for basics ( and more) on cemeteries and gravestones.
