I'm A Graveyard Rabbit

Most people know that I find it hard to resist any Genea-Blogger confab or project, especially if it is organized by the wonderful Terry Thornton of Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi.

His latest project, The Association of Graveyard Rabbits, is one that I feel is sorely needed and allows me to explore an area of cemetery and burial ground history - that of the rural cemeteries of New York State.

Take a look at some recent posts and learn how many of these cemeteries, organized so that burials were not made within city limits, are still active and remain true to the rural cemetery ideal of landscape architecture.

Thanks, THOMAS, for the mention but mainly, THANKS for becoming a member of the Graveyard Rabbits. I'm glad you joined in this effort to promote cemeteries and grave marker research. I look forward to reading more about the Rural Cemeteries of New York from the RCNY Graveyard Rabbit.
