I recently had a chance to talk with Dr. Donna Walcovy about her work restoring and preserving tombstones and cemeteries. She also reveals some secrets for cleaning and protecting different types of stones. Donna also spent some time describing the activities of the Association of Gravestone Studies.
Roots Television recorded our conversation and has now made it available online.
I asked Donna about the best method of photographing tombstones and I suggested one of the methods that has been used for decades. Pay attention to her reaction!
