A Cemetery Special

I ran across a show on Netflix about cemeteries that was definitely interesting. Any of you out there with Netflix access may enjoy it. It is also available for “Instant Streaming” so you can either watch it on your PC directly or any other device you use for that (like the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.)

It’s called Rick Sebak: A Cemetery Special from 2005. Netflix’s descriptions says:

Writer-producer Rick Sebak serves as your tour guide for this hourlong journey through America’s most notable cemeteries, examining the history and artistry of headstones, crypts, monuments and family plots. Stopping in Florida, Alaska and numerous points in between, this fascinating program explores humans’ diverse methods for honoring the departed — and the myriad ways in which graveyards relate to modern culture.

It’s an interesting look at this history of modern-day cemeteries and a nice tour of some of the country’s more popular locations.

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.
