Two free webinars to discuss funeral homes, migration patterns

Two free genealogy webinars will be offered this week covering the topics of funeral homes and migration patterns.

The Illinois State Genealogical Society will present “Funeral Homes and Family History” on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. Most genealogists know to look in a cemetery to find their ancestors, but what about the funeral home? Funeral home records can provide loads of genealogically rich information. This webinar will teach participants what types of records are typically found in funeral homes, how to locate these resources online and “in the field”, as well as provide real life examples of how to search for ancillary clues in funeral home records.
