Have You Written Your Tombstone?
One of the great joys of genealogy is discovering an ancestor’s tombstone, but are you prepared to glean every bit of genealogical information from the tombstone inscription?
This lecture discusses the wide array of information found on tombstones and how to use the findings as a stepping stone to further research.

Muddy Roads, Sick Babies, and Poor Accommodations.  As Overland Journey.  Vermont to Illinois, 1834
Many migrated westward, but few left a record of how or why.  By exploring motivations, the journey, and what they did when they arrived, researchers will be better prepared to analyze and reconstruct their own ancestors’ migrations.
