West Virginia Preservation Guide

Because cleaning cemeteries and decorating graves is a traditional springtime, pre-Memorial Day activity, we offer advice and sources of information regarding how to clear burial grounds and clean grave markers in a manner that will not damage them. Suppose you know of a cemetery needing preservation and cannot perform the work. In that case, we suggest you contact your local historical/genealogical society or other organizations, such as Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, who conduct public service projects.
