Death Stands Ready at the Door: Early American Tombstone Iconography and Attitud

Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at West Oaks Branch

Early tombstone iconography reflects the attitudes that our ancestors held about death. Understanding burial traditions and practices can enhance family history research by providing insight into our ancestors' religious beliefs, family patterns, and societal expectations. Burying grounds tell stories of war, social class, and immigration while symbolically revealing to us the hopes and dreams of our ancestors.
