The only hope to salvage the stones is through glue and in cases like the one below, metal straps to hold the pieces together.

A week in jail resolves the teenage boy affliction in most towns.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
