Cemetery Space Updates

Cemetery Space now has its own domain! You can find it at http://www.cemeteryspace.org - the old address still works too. I decided to go ahead and add a real domain name because it’s a little easier to remember (I hope) and it lets me have dedicated email addresses and other useful features. Now I need to come up with a logo!

In further news, this blog is now part of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits (aka GYR), an association of bloggers with a common interest in cemeteries. Joining the GYR has given me the impetus to refine this blog and focus more on the academic side of cemetery studies from a more anthropological/archaeological standpoint. What do I mean by that? Well, there hasn't been a lot of genealogical information in the blog, and there will be very little in the future. Genealogy is a topic that's well covered by other bloggers who are far more proficient in the various skills it requires than I am! I'm going to focus on things like cemetery layouts (they're not all the same), history and architecture, markers and their meaning, and similar topics. I will also be posting more regularly – I'm aiming for once a week, with at least one feature a month about a significant topic. This month's will be a discussion of the Upland South Folk Cemetery Complex, so keep an eye out!
