Project in Progress

For my Omeka exhibit, I will draw upon a personal collection of grave marker photos to examine the changes in grave markers over time in Butler County, PA. The exhibit will discuss the differences between religious and secular cemeteries, the designs and compositions of markers from the early 19th century to the present.
I will use photos of markers, maps of the grave locations, and textual sources, along with original text, to create this display. I hope to explain why changes in design and composition evolved over the past 200 years. Specifically, I would like to use Neatline to create a map where users can hover over pinned locations to see a photo and interpretive text. Ideally, I would like to integrate a timeline or some way to group markers by composition, design, or date… which I can’t currently remember how to do.
Honestly, I have no idea how to make this work, but I will come up with something & it will somehow all make sense by the due date.
