 A collaborative effort of cemetery preservation advocates working to increase public awareness and activism in preserving, protecting and restoring endangered and forgotten historic cemeteries worldwide.
"Saving Graves is dedicated to providing leadership, education and advocacy in preserving and restoring endangered and forgotten cemeteries worldwide."
Saving Graves is strongly committed to the preservation and protection of human burial sites from unauthorized and unwarranted disturbance, by man or nature
.Saving Graves was formed to educate and assist in the worldwide networking of people interested in protecting, restoring and preserving our historic cemeteries. We believe that the willful desecration or destruction of human burial sites is unacceptable in a civilized society. All over the globe, cemeteries have been threatened by neglect, insufficient funds, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy. These cemeteries constitute a memento of great achievements of the common everyday people that lived and worked there, contributing greatly to both culture and science, leading to the creation of a better place for those that followed. It is our primary objective to increase the awareness and highlight the importance of our historic cemeteries as sources of community and state pride, while promoting an attitude of reverence and respect, and encouraging the further preservation of these unique historical resources for future generations to appreciate and learn from. If society fails to appropriately and adequately deal with this issue through some definitive action, whether legislative or otherwise, not only will genealogical and historical resources likely be irreparably harmed, but society will potentially lose a valuable resource for charting its inexorable course into annals of human history.

With the help of the people of Clark County I have all of the Cemeteries in Clark county on a web site, and to get to them click on the above web site    I maintain these cemeteries on daily basis. If there is a burial, as soon as it gets to the register of deeds, she e-mails all the information to me and I make the entry.  There are over forty cemeteries plus  a few single graves and private cemeteries. The cemeteries of Clark County are in  good condition, We started a clean up program a few years ago and by picking approximately ten cemeteries, and with the help of the community, churches and organizations these cemeteries were cleaned up. We are hoping to make this an annual affair. There were a couple of cemeteries that were forgotten  and nothing done to them for over 40 years but these have been cleaned up and are on the web site. Welcome to Clark!
