Clues from the GraveyardSome of the most important records found in our genealogical odyssey are cemetery and graveyard records. When you think of cemetery records, what comes to your mind? Tombstones, right? And what method do you use to locate a gravestone or other marker? Do you walk the cemetery until you find it? I hope not, because that can be a huge investment of time and energy when, in many cases, there are records to be found elsewhere to help you home in on the exact position of the site of an interment. This written course goes into extensive detail about record types, how to find them, how to read and record information on a marker, and how to correctly clean a tombstone so as not to damage it.
