June 8, 2019 – Making the Most of a Cemetery Visit


For our June meeting we will discuss visiting the cemeteries where our ancestors are interred and taking care of their gravestones. We will hear from Amy Johnson Crow in her Ancestry Academy video, Written in Stone and talk about cleaning tombstones and markers. One question we hope to answer is: What’s best for cleaning a stone marker – a special cleaner or just plain water?

The meeting will take place from 1:30 pm-3:30 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The address of the Church is 1275 Timberwood Blvd., Charlottesville, VA. It is located on the corner of Airport Road and Timberwood. Coming from U.S. 29, the entrance is on the right (north) side of Airport Road immediately before you reach the church. Drive to the back of the building where you will see the entrance to the Family History Center.
