Join the Prince George’s County Historical Society (PGCHS) for a “Grave Conversation,” our next History Chat on Monday, March 22, 2021, at 7 PM. The Society’s Historian, Susan G. Pearl, will have a chat with Dr. Jennifer Stabler about the importance of cemeteries in Prince George’s County. Cemeteries are where we learn about our heritage. They tell a story about where we live, along with our relatives, and illustrate our interesting past.

Dr. Jennifer Stabler is the Archeology Master Planner for the Historic Preservation Section in the Prince George’s County Planning Department of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. She received in BA in Anthropology, Masters of Applied Anthropology, and a Ph.D. in American Studies all from the University of Maryland. Dr. Stabler has worked for the National Park Service on archeology at the Petersen House, where President Abraham Lincoln was taken after he was shot by John Wilkes Booth, and cataloging artifacts recovered from archaeological investigations at several national parks. She has worked on a variety of projects in Annapolis, Texas, and Virginia. Dr. Stabler also spent many summers working on sites in Israel and worked at a Roman villa site near Orvieto, Italy. Currently, she reviews development applications for effects on archeological resources and is working on the County cemetery survey started by the evening’s chat host, Susan Pearl.
