Genealogists love a cemetery. But how do you find the right graveyard for your ancestors, and – when you’re there – how do you find the precise plot where your your relatives are buried?
There may be no headstone – but this shouldn’t stop you from finding those all-important final resting places. If there is a memorial, it can provide valuable additional information about your family.
In this episode, I look at ways in which you can use online and offline resources to locate the cemetery in question, and I detail ways in which you can (records permitting) find the exact burial location.
Part-recorded in the cemetery where many of my ancestors are buried, this episode also looks explores some of the reasons why you should make visiting graveyards a key part of your family history quest.
Proof that I was actually there, can be found here. along with some of the images that I talk about during this episode.
I hope you enjoy it.
