"Searching for Clues in the    Cemetery"          

  
by
Joy Neighbors

Monday, March 9, 2015

    6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

   VCPL Rooms A, B & C

   Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

A trip to the cemetery can hold a wealth of information about your ancestors if you know how to prepare and where to look.

During this program, we will focus on the various types of cemetery records, and the different kinds of information that can be found throughout the graveyard. You will learn what to search for, where to look, and whom to contact. You’ll determine the difference between plot records, plat maps and interment records along with discovering clues about your ancestors hidden in burial orders, on gravestones, and throughout the cemetery.
