The practise of commemorating a loved one’s final resting place dates back thousands of years.

10.1 Tips Cemetery Visit

Cemeteries are living history lessons. People who buried their loved ones revealed a lot about themselves as well as those who had passed. While headstones are not considered primary sources of information, they are a good source of dates, birthplaces, maiden names, spouses’ names, and parents’ names.

Why should you visit a cemetery if you already know your ancestor’s birth and death dates? Because you never know what you might come across. Headstones nearby can lead you to further family members.
