Past the Cemetery Gate, the Graveyard as Genealogical Resource
North Andover Historical Society - 153 Academy Rd., North Andover, MA

7:00pm – 8:30pm
In this presentation, our hosts The Gravestone Girls, directly aims at genealogists and how we can learn to 'read' the cemetery for clues and information. Using both direct observation and deductive reasoning from objects such as the writing, art, geology and the cemetery landscape, much new insight can be revealed. That new insight can answer questions, create new inquiries and open doors for further detective work. Many genealogists use the cemetery as a cursory resource, some haven't tapped it at all. Their program will get us looking at these spaces, both old and new, as a valuable resource for data collection activities! This is a new program in the GG hit parade, so come check it out! Details
