Pamela Dallas will be presenting two classes:
Carved In Stone: Cemetery Research For Genealogy: Cemeteries are one of the most valuable resources in family history research. We will explore methods of locating cemeteries, preparing for the research trip, and ways of recording the information you find. Learn about burial registers, headstone inscriptions & symbols, plus much more during this fascinating presentation.
Remember the Ladies: Finding Your Female Ancestors: Uncover the clues that will help you find your elusive female ancestors! Discovering the maiden name of your female ancestors can be frustrating and difficult. In this class, you will identify new ways to not only find her maiden name but learn about her as an individual.
