Sat., Sept. 11: “Digging Into Cemetery Research,” with Pam Taylor

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Pam Taylor is our speaker for our Sept. 11 meeting. Digging Into Cemetery Research, this presentation covers a multitude of sources used to locate death certificates/records. Pam also provides information about different types of cemeteries, grave markers, and their symbols. Of particular interest will
be illustrations of burial permits and coroner records. This presentation is an in-depth look at cemetery research with beautiful photos and source examples.

Of her experiences, Pam says, “I have been working on my family history for over 25 years, searching the United States, Canada, and across the pond. My greatest success stories come not from the internet websites but from digging into libraries, archives, historical societies, cemeteries, and courthouses. I love using FREE genealogical websites such as State Archives, Libraries Local history databases, FamilySearch.org, Poznan Project, and so many, many more. For the last 13 years, I have worked at the New Lenox Public Library, where I am the Genealogy specialist which includes presenting genealogy programs and helping patrons with their genealogical research.”

We plan for this to be a “hybrid meeting” — that is, in-person as well as via Zoom. (We’ve never done a hybrid general meeting before, so please bear with us!) See below for Zoom login information.
> If you’re attending in person:
We used to meet in the Village Hall Meeting Room, whose entrance was in the center of the building. Since the building has been renovated, our meetings will now take place in the gym. Enter through the building’s far west doors, just as you would to visit the SSGHS Library.
> Cook County mandate requires that masks be worn indoors.
> Refreshments will not be served at this meeting.
