Necked Discoid MarkerOur next meeting will be Tuesday, 13 May 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium at St. Louis County Library Headquarters.

The meetings, co-sponsored by the St. Louis Genealogical Society and the St. Louis County Library, are free and open to the public.

The May general meeting will feature cemetery researcher, Michael McNerney, who will talk about “A Shape in Time and Space: Tracking the Necked Discoid Gravemarker.” The necked discoid gravemarker is unique in that it has a vaguely human shape. Take a look at the distribution of this style from Italy to Oklahoma, including stops in Spain, England, Ireland, Southeastern U.S., and Missouri. There are family names on most of the markers that will be of interest to the genealogist.

Please note: This meeting takes us back to our warm weather evening schedule. The meeting will start promptly at 7 p.m., so be sure to be on time.
