Learn the language of cemetery art symbolism. Laurel Mellien’s program concentrates on the gravestone art produced during the Victorian Era. The headstone decorations, with their associated symbolic meanings, were carefully chosen by the remaining family members to properly represent their departed loved one. Many times clues about the deceased can be discovered from the headstone art when the gravestone’s inscription is unreadable. This program provides a great tool for genealogical work.
