Preserving Our Heritage

Oklahoma


Welcome,

We have decided to put together pages that will offer some insight of the Preservation and Restoration of Oklahoma Cemeteries as well as keeping records and other history items safe and protected for years to come.

The information found here is either my personal or from creditable sources in that field. As, time goes on I hope to gain insight from others around the state.

Also, we hope everyone will see this as an Informative Page with topics, ideas and suggestions for all. Not all subjects will fit every person in every situation.

My email can be found in the top navigation bar, I encourage those with questions or would like to share any tips or suggestions to email me.


Also note this subject matter has been studied and documented over years entire books have been published. Iam not a professional in this field. I share the same passion as most vistors to this site do.

Talking Headstones

Just like the title says "Talking Headstones" are the latest to hit the Cemetery scene. This new trend to will allow vistors to a cemetery plot to listen to stories in a persons own voice, see photos and more. Think if you could hear about the lives of family 50 to 100 years ago. Are you willing and ready to add this to your headstone? Have a QR reader on your cell phone ,SCAN barcode below to read the full story or simply

Change History

There are many reasons as to why a person starts conducting family research or become interested in local cemeteries. I for one never gave it much thought until my father passed and realized I knew nothing about my family history. Which led years later to having interest in Oklahoma Cemeteries and so on.

I set out like many of us do. We wait until something happens in our lives to motivate us, things like family health, loss of loved one, or seeking Tribal Citizenship, and the list cold go on as what led us to research our heritage.

At first, things are going good thanks to current websites and information at the ready. Excitement builds and builds, you ve been up all night and it happens. Out of nowhere everything comes to a sudden Stop! Things are not adding up for you, dates and names are wrong, or locations are wrong. Attempts are made to find and figure out where you went wrong. If only you could find the answer or something and it would all go back to normal and line up. You cannot find it, or you know their buried somewere but theres no marked headstone and the caretaker hasnt been seen in 20+ years. You have hit the "BRICK WALL". After this usually comees , "ugh if only they had kept better records, taken photos, did something anything but nothing".

Though we cannot change the past or how things are done. You can help change the future. One day just has you had set out to find your familys history, generations down the road will too. Decide to record your life and those around you today. You can write it, speak it, video or photograph it, but do it. The same feeling that you felt when you discovered that old war letter from 4x Great Grandfather. I promise 100+ years down the road they will feel the same way when they read about your life.
