Gravestone Conservation for the Genealogist

Presented by Christopher White

Have you ever seen that unreadable gravestone or that toppled monument and wondered what can I do to address its condition? There is a correct way and an incorrect way to remedy that gravestone. Christopher White, a genealogist, historian, and gravestone conservator, will present a program on gravestone conservation including cleaning, repair, what to do, what not to do, when to do nothing, and when to seek a professional conservator.

Christopher White, genealogist, historian, and gravestone conservator has over thirty years of genealogical research. He holds both a Bachelors and Masters degree in History from the University at Albany. His writings include a Masters Thesis; From Acceptance to Renunication: Das Ende von Albanys Deutschtum. His focus is on local genealogy, gravestone conservation, and German-American history in the Capital District area of New York.
