Learning about Tombstones and Death Records
March 7, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
“The Stones Speak” – Learning about Tombstones and Death Records
The end of your researching could be the beginning. Death records research can begin or end at the cemetery tombstone. An inscription can lead a family historian on a search for all things related to that name. Death certificates, obituaries, death notices, funeral cards and funeral home records can complete the stone’s sparse information, bringing the researcher’s story full circle.
Mark Busch of Busch Funeral Homes will present an overview of funeral records. The Busch family has been active for over 100 years, with six funeral home in Cleveland and West side areas. Genealogical Committee members will assist class participants with hands-on work in the Research Library also.
Time: Noon to 3pm. Registration fee $15.
