"Cemeteries are Fascinating Places"

Cemeteries are one of the ways we honor our dead, and as such, they provide much information about our culture
and our history. This program will present a casual overview of some aspects of cemeteries including customs and
practices, epitaphs, types of tombstones and materials, military markers, and symbolism. We will also look
at some problems facing cemeteries, such as crowding, damage and erosion, animals and other hazards, and restoration and cleaning.
Finally, we will discuss tips for taking pictures of tombstones, see some unique or
unusual stones, and explore popular websites about cemeteries.

1848 Land Transfer Book
The Morrow County Genealogical Society has reproduced the Original 1848 Land Transfer Book. In order to preserve this book,
each page has been professional photographed. Faded lines/ names on each page have been read by magnifying glass and the
name inserted in book by page number. Many resources have been added to the book to help in research
such as: 1848 Map; history of old towns and townships,range, section information, road names, road numbers etc.
Morrow County was taken from parts of four other counties: Delaware, Knox, Marion and Richland Counties;
thus, names and locations in the book were originally in another county.
This is a 167 page spiral bound book, printed on 11 x 17 paper. (Ledger paper size) It is twice the size of a normal book.
Cost: $42.50 + $3.08 tax and $5.50 Postage & Handling..
The book can be ordered using the Publications Price list and Order Form found here.
