Linda Recommended a Terrific YouTube Video!!

Tonight I was browsing through my Dashboard, and I came upon a fascinating video, posted by Linda at Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in Ohio. This link will take you directly to the Grave Adventures of the HCLL video on You Tube. This particular video provides an interesting history of the Berlin Cemetery in Holmes County, Ohio. The two "Library Ladies" and the videographer have done an amazing job of putting together the history of the Berlin Cemetery and the Pomerene family, along with lovely images of tombstones. The sections are connected by the artful turning of a virtual page, and the music is just right for the topic. Have fun watching the Grave Adventures of the Holmes County Library Ladies!!

Of course, Berlin is in the heart of Ohio's Amish Country, so consider going to Holmes County, Ohio in person. A delightful library system, historic cemeteries, and lots of wonderful shopping, cultural, and culinary delights await you! Thank you so much, Linda for always being so informative about cemeteries in Ohio!

Hi Dorene. It is always a pleasure to share information about people and organizations who are promoting the betterment of Ohio's cemeteries whether it be through hands-on preservation efforts, gravestone transcriptions, guided tours, workshop presentations; they all add up to a revitalized awareness of the importance of protecting the final resting places of our relatives and ancestors.

Thank you, Dorene, for all you continue to do with your great blog that we enjoy and look forward to reading each new post.

"The Grave Adventures of The Holmes County Library Ladies" is a unique name that caught my eye when I first saw it. How creative and appropriate for the subject.

We wish them all the best as they continue with their grave adventures and encourage them to keep sharing them with us.
