Searching for ancestors in local cemeteries is not for the faint of heart, but ghosts and goblins are the least of your concerns. Missing gravestones, mis-marked markers, and gravestones that were never engraved lead to discoveries that are thrilling, disappointing and mysterious, in turn.
What to expect, what not to expect and preparing for the unexpected are all covered in this “How To” of cemetery sleuthing. Etiquette, safety, and working with the cemetery office staff, will also be covered, as will tips on maintaining an attractive gravesite for your ancestor.
Whether you’re just getting started in cemetery research or you’ve been doing it for a while, you’re sure to enjoy some fascinating stories and gain valuable tips as Pat shares her experiences in sleuthing our Chicago cemeteries.
