Ohio Chapter of the Association for Gravestone Studies planning next meeting.

 my friend Beth sent me an update of the AGS next meeting so check it out. 

  The Association for Gravestones Study


Hello all,

With another winter storm heading for Ohio, it helps me to think about spring and planning for our next OH AGS Chapter meeting!
At our last meeting in November, which was FANTASTIC, we asked for volunteers to host our next chapter meeting in March or April.  Is anyone interested?  If so, please let me know by February 19.  I will be happy to help in any way I can with the meeting (and any questions about hosting a meeting).  If no one has expressed interest by then, I will plan something near Central Ohio. 
Our last meeting was November 6 at the Hancock Historical Museum in Findlay, Ohio.  Kate Hayfield gave a terrific talk about the research she has done at Graham Cemetery, and after lunch, Gene Damon and Dianna Schweinfurth drove us out to several nearby cemeteries.  There are photos posted on our facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Ohio-Chapter-of-the-Association-for-Gravestone-Studies/155565877794947
We also had a short business meeting.  Items discussed were the Regional Chapter guidelines that were created and given to us by the AGS Regional Chapters committee (these guidelines were created in October 2010, after our September meeting) and our chapter t-shirts. Nancy Ottman shared the t-shirt designs she received, and asked others to send her photos of gravestone carvings that we could turn into lineart to be used on shirts.  Once she sends me the designs, I will post them online so everyone can vote on their favorite.
I have attached the Regional Chapter Guidelines, as well as the rosters for our last two meetings.
I look forward to even more events in 2011.
Hope to hear from you all soon,
Beth Santore
