Over ten years ago, Phil and Lorna Wooldridge took their first deep look at a cemetery, when Lorna used the Free Union Cemetery to teach American History to their son and a group of homeschoolers. It was a handy location, being directly across the street from their home in Warren County, NJ.

Since that time, they have visited and studied many cemeteries across the North East and as far as Alabama. They have produced three cemetery themed presentations and two workshops, including a family oriented workshop called "G is for Gravestone" as a way of sharing their fascination with the next generation.
