Researching Your Family History in Cemeteries -- presentation on Monday, March 25, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.

Please join us on Monday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. when Craig Pfannkuche of McHenry County Historical Society presents his slide illustrated program on cemetery research at Harvard Diggins Library. Was your relative really born in Manchester, England like the death certificate states, or was it is Liverpool as the grave stone says? Was the deceased especially proud of his profession? Did he fight in a war? Cemetery records, both in paper and stone, can provide wonderful data for the family history researcher as well as for the community history researcher. Even the type of cemetery or the placement of a grave within a cemetery can provide insight into the nature of the deceased which can not be obtained in the usual way. All of these things and more will be illustrated and discussed in this fascinating presentation.

Registration is required. Please call 815-943-4671 if you have any questions or to sign up your family. Younger children will need adult assistance with the games.
