Preserving stones – and memories

The Association for Gravestone Studies – Illinois Chapter held their fall meeting on Sept. 12 at the Oak Park Public Library. For those unaware, AGS was founded in 1977 as a nonprofit organization for the purpose of furthering the study and preservation of gravestones. They hold an annual conference the third week of June each year at a different location. The chapters have two meetings per year, spring and fall.
