The recording of today's webinar, "Find A Grave - The World's Largest Cemetery Database" by Russ Worthington is now available to view for free for a limited time at A few comments from our viewers:
  • Having been a member of Find A Grave for over 5 years, Russ taught things that I did not know. Always great learning new things. This was great information to know.
  • Wow! I learned so much! I had thought I already "knew it all" about findagrave. Not so!! There is so much more there than I had thought. Thanks! Great webinar!!!
  • Very informative - explained some features and search tips I was unfamiliar with even though I've used Find a Grave for years. Also appreciated Jeff's "mini-session" on source citation and cutting and pasting from FAG into the source box.

Legacy QuickGuide - Cemetery Research
Cemetery Research
The Cemetery Research Legacy QuickGuide™ contains useful information including tips and tricks, a list of different types of cemeteries, terminology, and more. This handy 4-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
For the genealogy researcher, cemeteries are considered “museums” providing a link with the past which reflect the culture, history, art, architecture and attitudes of an ancestor’s era. Data found through cemetery visits, as well as through online and/or offline cemetery research, may unearth clues about an ancestor and about the time and place where an ancestor lived.
