Gravestone Iconography- Is there more to learn after you read the words? (Workshop)
Presented by Susan & Bill Snyder
Gravestone Iconography- Is there more to learn after you read the words?
Names, dates, and places are what most genealogists retrieve from a tombstone; but wait, there may be more information there. Have you ever looked at an icon or symbol that appears on a tombstone? If so, do you know what it means? Can it tell you something personal about the deceased? In this workshop we will talk about some of the more common icons and symbols that you may encounter and their significance to your research.
