There are many cemeteries that have been neglected, lost and forgotten and may be run by not-for-profit cemetery associations that have gravestones in need of conservation and preservation. Reed Antis, local cemetery preservationist, will show participants proper cleaning techniques and how to straighten leaning gravestones properly. There will be discussion of how the different types of gravestones have changed throughout the years.
