Tiptoeing Through Tombstones
Beginner level and up
Presenter: Laura Street Chaplin
Transcribing information from cemetery tombstones is something most every family historian does early on. Come learn about the history of cemeteries and how they've changed, death customs through the years, meanings on tombstone symbols, religious clues, and much more. You'll come away with a great many informative handouts. Plus, Laura shares her best strategies for preparing for your next cemetery research trip!
