New Hampshire Cemeteries and Gravestones

Rubbings, photographs, and slides illustrate the rich variety of gravestones to be found in our own neighborhoods, but they also tell long-forgotten stories of such historical events as the Great Awakening, the Throat Distemper epidemic, and the American Revolution. Find out more about these deeply personal works of art and the craftsmen who carved them. Learn how to read these stone ″pages″ that give insight into the vast genealogical book of New Hampshire.

This program will be held on June 23, 2011 at the Hooksett Public Library beginning at 630 pm and is being co sponsored by the Hooksett Public Library and through the NH Humanities Council
