Description

Not all research can be done from home–sometimes you have to head into the field. Cemeteries are crucial for any genealogist’s search, and this book will show you how to search for and analyze your ancestors’ graves. Discover tools for locating tombstones, tips for traipsing through cemeteries, an at-a-glance guide to frequently used gravestone icons, and practical strategies for on-the-ground research. And once you’ve returned home, learn how to incorporate gravestone information into your research, as well as how to upload grave locations to BillionGraves and record your findings in memorial pages on Find A Grave.

  • Detailed step-by-step guides to finding ancestors’ cemeteries using websites like Find A Grave, plus how to record and preserve death and  burial information
  • Tips and strategies for navigating cemeteries and finding individual tombstones in the field, plus an at-a-glance guide to tombstone symbols and iconography
  • Resources and techniques for discovering other death records and incorporating information from cemeteries into genealogical research
