‘Preserving Historic Cemeteries’ Will Be Focus of Montgomery History’s Online Presentation Available Sept. 26-Oct. 2

Preserving Historic Cemeteries, including the importance—and excitement—of researching, locating, archiving and preserving these historic places—will be the theme of an online presentation of Montgomery History starting Monday, Sept. 26, and available through Sunday, Oct. 2.

Author Glenn Wallace, coordinator of “Montgomery County Cemetery Inventory Revisited” for Montgomery Preservation, will lead the presentation.

The overview describes the basic process that anyone interested in cemeteries can follow. Mr. Wallace also will detail his 15-year process archiving Monocacy Cemetery.

Mr. Wallace and Project Director Eileen McGuckian four years ago took on a Montgomery Preservation adventure to significantly update the Montgomery County Cemetery Inventory in terms of data, technology and accessibility. During 2018, 90 trained volunteers visited all known burial sites in Montgomery County. Project volunteers assessed conditions, completed survey forms, noted GPS coordinates, conducted additional research and took a variety of photographs to capture the current environment.
