Webinar: Discovering family history through gravestones

We recently hosted an online webinar on how to discover family history through gravestones. We were joined by two of our experts – US genealogy advisor Schelly Talalay Dardashti and chief genealogist Daniel Horowitz.

Schelly talked about the information that can be revealed about family via gravestones. Daniel discussed our recent partnership with BillionGraves and how to get involved in preserving cemeteries for future generations.

    Thank you! A huge issue that’s always talked about is the challenge of deciphering old handwriting, special symbols, and abbreviations. It’s not a topic that the other webinar providers have beaten to death, so it could be a special draw.

    I would promote the life out of that, since arguments over “what does this say” happen every single day on message boards I follow, and I will rip my hair out if people continue to not know how to read old cursive script, interpret a dash on a census, or understand the abbreviation “do.” Help! 🙂

    A series of webinars showing how to restore damaged grave markers. I know that everyone that tries to do repair does so with the intent to improve things. However if a person doesn’t understand the correct methods and materials to use they can cause more damage than good. We need as many venues as we can to promote “Do NO harm”.
