    My one honorable mention was a find made in a graveyard.

    IMO...I would say that was an "exception to the rule." You were contacted concerning an item known to be recently lost in the cemetery. You were only looking on the surface ( albeit under snow) for lost item. Belated congratulations on your honorable mention.


    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Well heck ya. Look at it this way you had permission and the possibility of making new friends, what can happen. Lol

    On a serious note I don’t think so. I’ve visited a few but wouldn’t hunt there.

    I dont see anything wrong with it. Its not like your grave digging. If your that concerned about it just hunt around the outskirts like along the fenceline, If its an old property you may get some nice finds.

    I'm guessing it was a zombie that gave you permission to hunt the graveyard?

    There is a cemetery near me that the last know "member" was buried in the late 1920's.

    There is a huge grassed in section now that looks like an old parking spot, and the cemetery itself is so far out of the way, that I doubt many people even know it's there anymore.

    I stumbled across it quite accidentally, and have asked some locals if they even know the name of it.

    All I seem to get is "there's a cemetery there"??

    I still won't dig it, but that parking area sure looks inviting!
    Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

I am constantly working on it, including digging up the gravestones and resetting them straight, and digging borders around them to help prevent me from damaging the stones with the lawn mower, etc.
    When I first started detecting, I did go out to the cemetery. It is the only sectioned off land, so I could keep track of where I was at and I was trying to learn what the detector was trying to tell me. I didn't realize it was such a big "no-no" for some people. I ended up digging a shotgun shell and a beer can out of it. Now IMO, that was disrespectful, and I was "led" there to get them out. Again, I stress IMO. Since then, I have learned that it's a "stumbling block" for some tnet members. For that reason, I will not detect there just for the sake of detecting. I am not going to stop straightening up tombstones and digging out stumps.

    gold boy, it's nice that you do that because anyone who may visit will get a good feeling knowing someone out there cares.

    Geobound, I was using the fence to learn it's signals and how close I could get before it would set off my detector. I find a lot of rusty fence in the ground and I was tired of digging it up. On hindsight, I could have went around the outside of the fence. Also, I decided to just dig up every signal anyway.
    The first person in my cemetery was buried in 1855. The last person buried there was 1900. I can't find the information now, but somewhere I read that it's considered abandoned because it was a church cemetery (nonprofit) that no longer exists and since it's been 100+ years since the last burial, there would not be any immediate descendants. That's for Ohio. Every place has their own regulations.
    Since people are so interested in their geneology, we had a couple ladies come knocking on our door and I showed them the cemetery. Then, one day, we came home and found a note with name and phone number and inquiring about the cemetery. My husband called them back and we will be hosting a family reunion of sorts (their family, not ours) for 20 +/- people we've never met before. They will be coming NC, CA, MI, and who knows where else. This has increased the incentive for me to clean up and fix what I can. Kind of cool, IMO.

    I'll admit it, I md a cemetery. I live in the house that I grew up in. I bought it from my parents 20 years ago. Before I was born, my father was putting a fence in and was digging a hole for a post when he dug up human bones. Freaked my mother out. There is a headstone that lies in a large patch of lilacs just off of my back porch. Going by the name on the stone and by the abstract of my property, the woman died around 1850. She is buried about 75 yards due east of the house in what is now a 2 acre patch of alfalfa. And yes, I did run a metal detector in that vicinity.

    Been living next to (and now with) a cemetery for 33/34 years. It's not the dead you have to worry about. It's the living that "haunt" me.
