June 25 – 10:00 AM – Stream A – Obituaries as Priceless Genealogy Resources

Summary  

Daniel will show you techniques and repositories that will help you find obituaries written about your ancestors and glean valuable information from them.  

Outline 

The information in obituaries can teach you fascinating details about your relatives’ lives that you won’t find anywhere else. Beyond the basic information about the ancestor’s life and death, you might learn about their professions, passions, and loved ones, and gain a glimpse into what it was like to know them. In this session, Daniel will show you techniques and repositories that can help you find your ancestors’ stories after their death — even if previous attempts you’ve made came up dry.
