MEETING SCHEDULE

Using Find-A-Grave - Dave Peterson

Nov. 8, 2022 - 7:00PM at Schreiner Memorial Library (113 W Elm Street, Lancaster)

         Dave Peterson will give a program about using Find A Grave as a tool for researching family history. The free website Find A Grave got its start in 1995 when founder Jim Tipton built a website to share his hobby of visiting the graves of famous people. It's collection of over 210 million memorials worldwide has grown to contain much more information than just death and burial details for each memorial. Contributors often submit obituaries, photographs, birth information, or biographies as well as the family relationships of the person, such as their parents, siblings and children. This provides a wealth of information to anyone doing family history research. Dave will also discuss how to use Find A grave information in conjunction with other family history resources such as courthouse records and the various resources and records at the Research Center in Lancaster.
