A Cemetery Log is a Splendid Gift for a Family History Researcher

Standard2Our exclusive cemetery log was released last October at the Indiana State Library’s annual Genealogy Show. The log features 34 pages including log sheets to record the genealogical findings during cemetery visits. The log also contains a symbols guide to aid in decoding tombstone symbols you may find as well as a reference to the common tombstone styles you’ll encounter out in the field.

You can order a copy by clicking on ‘The Marketplace’ tab above and scrolling down to the Cemetery Log.

We are excited to announce that National Library Bindery Company Brand Cemetery Logs are now available for purchase at the Indiana Historical Bureau’s Gift Shop located at 140 North Senate Avenue.
