Facebook Cemetery Groups

I joined Facebook in 2007 and spend an inordinate amount of time there.  One of the things that fascinates me most about it is the number of groups dedicated to cemeteries.  These divide into ever-finer slices of cemetery-related topics.  Interested in funny names on headstones? There’s a group for that. Like to see wildlife in the graveyard or animals on tombstones? There’s a group for that. Curious about symbolism or history or genealogy? There are groups for that, too.

I have been interviewing the moderators of the cemetery groups with an eye to writing an overview of them, but there are so many — and I’m finding their responses so individual and interesting — that I’m going to start running the interviews here.  They won’t be back-to-back as I’m going to have to break in with Cemeteries of the Week and some other essays about things on my mind, so I will categorize them all as Facebook Cemetery Group just to make finding them easier.

The first one will go up to tomorrow.  I can’t say how many there will be in all, as I keep discovering more and more groups.  Let me know if you have a favorite and I’ll interview their moderator as well.
