Abstract

With the majority of Koreans now living in cities, many still travel to ancestral villages to carry out the annual rites in family graveyards. However, an official campaign was initiated in 1998 to encourage cremation in Seoul. The paper describes small family graveyards. It also describes different types of columbaria. Discussion focuses on the persistent cultural significance of maintaining ties with patrineal places of origin. The AA. suggest that this is a valued Confucian dimension of Korean heritage
