This class will examine the many different symbols and designs featured on American tombstones from the colonial period to the present day. It will offer the possibility of gaining a greater understanding for why people chose a particular symbol, what ideas were they trying to convey, and what did they mean by that. The class will feature many examples from more than 300 years of American tombstones.
For more information, see the Family History Month brochure.
