Court Houses and Cemeteries, Oh My!
Saturday, May 16, 2015
10 a.m. to noon Day Classrooms, Indiana History Center
Do you need help doing court house research? Does cemetery research creep you out? This workshop is for you!
The records in a court house were not actually created to provide genealogical data. However, an understanding of the how and why of the structure of the court records can lead you to a wealth of family history information. This program explains many types of court records, where you can find them, and what is available to you.
Learn what resources are available for locating cemeteries, including Terra Server, Find a Grave and a Billion Graves. Suggestions on how to do on-site research, plus tombstone rubbing techniques and display samples. Also, learn two methods of calculating the birth date when only the date of death and age is given on the tombstone. Cemeteries will prove to be a great resource for your genealogy research.
