Event Description

Cryptic Clues in the Boneyard


Kevin Spire will present “Cryptic Clues in the Boneyard at the May 22nd meeting of the Iowa City Genealogical Society. While symbols have been a common form of communication for years, those symbols transcend language and leave impressions with the reader. Kevin will explain what your ancestors were trying to communicate on the gravestone about their dearly departed.

Kevin Spire is a native Iowan whose passion for genealogy began as a young boy. He is a member of the Iowa Genealogy Society, of which he has served as president and has taught classes for the last five year.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the Zoom meeting, which will begin at 9:30 a.m. May 22nd.  Non- members can send an email to to receive details on how to join the meeting.
