On Friday, May 13, Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Listening to Your Ancestor’s Tombstone” at 2 p.m. In this webinar, tips will be given on how to find different cemeteries depending on time period, type (church or commercial), and economic condition of the deceased. In their shape and inscribed symbols, tombstones can speak of the lifestyle of the deceased or the attitude of death of the loved ones left behind. They are being destroyed by many factors, which make them illegible or eradicate them altogether. This webinar shows what problems are encountered in reading a variety of markers and what might be done to overcome them. Internet sources and resources are also discussed throughout the lecture.
