This group was founded with the express purpose of saving cemeteries in the southern states, in particular Georgia. We wish to educated people about cemeteries - how they are in danger from development, vandalism and neglect. We want to encourage people to locate forgotten cemeteries, care for them, transcribe them if possible, protect them from disappearing. As I become more comfortable with web pages, I hope to add lessons on transcription, cleaning headstones, repairing monuments, doing rubbings, dealing with threats to cemeteries, and more. If you have any questions about anything having to do with southern cemeteries, email me at
