Free webinar to discuss obituary research

The Illinois Genealogical Society will present a free webinar on Tuesday, July 14, at 9 p.m. entitled “Dissect Obituaries for New Clues.”

Obituaries are miniature biographies for the deceased. Your job is to carefully analyze the content of the death notice, obituary, and/or funeral notice and look for clues. This seminar presents a methodology for dissecting an obituary, determining what information is provided or inferred, identifying record types that may be available, where those records are located, and how to access them. A sample obituary is dissected and discussed.
