Spend the evening with Cemetery Historian David Habben. Using hundreds of photos of grave stones taken by the instructor, you will learn the secret language of tomb stones. Learn how to interpret the cryptic emblems, signs & symbols found on grave stones. Many of our ancestors were illiterate. Signs and symbols are the universal language of grave stones. They tell us if the deceased was male or female; religious; belonged to a fraternal organization; was well loved; or even if he or she had a sense of humor, all without knowing how to read. We'll even discuss the history of cemeteries, burial customs, symbolism and even a little humor!
