An association dedicated to preserve and protect Ohio's most precious and endangered heritage resources -- our historic cemeteries and burying grounds. A primary goal of OCPS will be to increase the awareness and inestimable value of our cemeteries as sosurces of community and state pride and encourage groups and individuals to help preserve them as landmarks for future generations to learn from and appreciate.
This group was started by David L. Habegger in 1995 as a way to bring together genealogists working on Anabaptist families. The group started out with the nickname O.M.I.I. as the participants were primarily from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Over the years the group has continued to expand and now has members from dozens of states and multiple countries.
