What’s a Graveyard Rabbit? Well, there are about 40 or so new ones in the blogosphere as of tonight!
The Association of Graveyard Rabbits is an inspired idea from Terry Thornton, writer and publisher of The Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi. It is a group of bloggers focused only on issues of cemeteries, burial, memorial monuments, and the like. In putting this project together, Terry and co-conspirator footMaven have done something unprecedented in the field of genealogical and historical writing. In a little over three weeks, the project has attracted an international field of writers who last week produced more than 90 diverse and interesting articles.
Most of the Graveyard Rabbits are regionally focused. Here at GeneaBlogie, we’re participating with The Peripatetic Graveyard Rabbit, a blog that will cover cemetery issues around the world and include the occasional article on the law related to cemeteries and burials. The blog’s already been active a few days–check out what’s there now! In the sidebar of that blog is a list of other Graveyard Rabbits–see if there’s one for the region you research the most.
A digest of last week’s Graveyard Rabbit articles from around the world can be found at the Association’s blog here.
Now, why exactly the name Graveyard Rabbit? You’ll have to read this article: About the Name Graveyard Rabbit to find out!
We’ll post several times a month at The Peripatetic Graveyard Rabbit. we hope you’ll join us as well as the other Rabbits for a close look at matters of grave concern.
