Hello, Everyone. Just wanted to post a notice about a booklet we have published on 19thc. mourning practices. It is titled:

RACHEL WEEPING: MOURNING IN NINETEENTH CENTURY AMERICA, by Karen Rae Mehaffey. MI: Moss Rose Books, LLC, 2006.

50pp.; 38 illus. ; $10.95.

Wholesale pricing available for sutlers.

Topics include mourning clothing, jewelry,remembrance cards, post-mortem photos, burial practices, mourning stages, the evolution of American rituals, symbolisms, and a lengthy glossary of mourning-related terms. It is based on mourning research that I have been doing for 20 years, and includes numerous photos and images from my personal collection. The focus of the booklet is the mid-19thc. and the changes that took place in mourning as a result of the Civil War.
