Central Massachusetts Genealogical Society Monthly Meeting

The monthly meeting of CMGSO will take place on October 29, 2019 in the upper hall of the American Legion Post #129 at 22 Elm Street, Gardner MA.

Speaker: Daniel Earl: “Funeral Homes and Family History: They’re Dying To Meet You”

Most genealogists know how to look in a cemetery to find their ancestors, but what about funeral homes? Funeral home records can provide loads of genealogically rich information. This presentation will teach participants what types of records are typically found in funeral homes, how to locate these resources online an “in the field”, as well as provide real-life examples of how to search from ancillary clues in funeral home records.

Daniel Earl got his start at age 10 when he visited his great-grandfather’s grave. He spent the last 25 years researching his own family and helping others make history a part of their story. Daniel is a member of several groups and organizations and has experience doing research in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states in the United States, New England, Eastern Canada, Eastern Europe, Great Britain and Ireland.
