The Ohio Genealogical Society is seeking writers who wish to share their historical accounts of the lives of those interred in Ohio’s Cemeteries — So here is an opportunity to share your knowledge of your favorite Ohio Cemetery!

Sharing….
 
From Susan Dunlap Lee, the Senior Editor of the “Ohio Genealogical Society Quarterly” publication.
 
OGS is seeking contributing authors for this publication on the topic of preserving cemeteries through sharing of historical accounts of those interred in them.  Susan has provided the following information.:
 
“..articles are more about the people in the cemetery, their relationship to everyone there, point out military graves, personal data. Sort of “My Town” kind of article that you can put together from those who are buried in the cemetery. Far from the usual cemetery inscriptions.”
 
Susan can be contacted at the following email address: ogsq@ogs.org.

Per Susan, it is not a requirement to be an Ohio Genealogical Society member to submit a story for publication.
 
If you are a member of OGS, or have access to a library that contains OGS publications, you can reference the feature articles about the Stratford Cemetery in Delaware as an example for the type of content, etc. that Susan is seeking for cemetery articles.
