We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week. However, we have a very special return guest with a fascinating story joining us next week and we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled program! We humbly apologize and we thank you for sticking with us on all of our Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery journeys. Until we meet again!

Episode 118 Say What? A Cemetery Q and A Part 2

Episode 118 Say What? A Cemetery Q and A Part 2

Dianne and Jennie continue to answer your questions in this second Q and A installment of the Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery podcast. They discuss an old-wives tale regarding burial of those who die by suicide, answer questions about how they do their research for each episode, and share some of their favorite cemetery book recommendations. To round out the episode, they discuss Boston's Granary Burying Ground and how many souls rest beneath its soil. Jennie and Dianne are so happy to begin another year of learning all about cemeteries and the Ordinary Extraordinary stories buried within and they are grateful to have you along for the journey.
