With Halloween fast approaching in the US, our thoughts turn to cemeteries as creepy places where ghosts hide. However, genealogists know that the graveyards have rich genealogical details waiting to be unearthed. The Cemetery Research Boot Camp Digital Download is perfect for those looking to improve how they research genealogy using cemetery records AND cemetery visits.
Join family history expert Devon Noel Lee of Family History Fanatics for over 3 hours of recorded webinars PLUS some amazing handouts with Cemetery Research Boot Camp!
- Snapping Better Gravestone Photographs: Go from Point-and-Shoot to Beautiful. Photographs of headstones and grave markers are fantastic resources to mark the final resting place of our ancestors and can provide rich genealogical details. Despite the ease of taking photographs with digital cameras, why is the quality of grave marker images still no better than the photos from the 1970s? In this session, we’ll talk about the tips and tricks to take better photographs while at the cemetery, including avoiding the biggest error (capturing yourself on the stone!)
- Why are Two Unrelated Men Buried in Someone Else’s Plot?
When you discover two unrelated individuals buried in a family plot, can you determine their connection? As people migrated into and out of the Mid-West, some burial plots were inherited by relatives who stayed behind. If the funeral records no longer exist, can you still determine the familial connection between individuals? In this session, we’ll walk through a case study of how Earl Wiggins and William Geiszler, who are not close kin, wind up interred in a plot that isn’t a family line of either man.
Here’s What You Get . . .
With this digital download, you get both recorded webinars totaling 3 hours of genealogy education, and 8 pages of handouts! You’ll have unlimited access to these materials and learn how to finally get going on your scrapbooking projects!
