Join us for a free virtual program on November 19th at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Cemeteries tell us much about who came before us. The size, shape and documentation vary from religious groups, time period, and location. But all are important outdoor museums and can help you better understand your family, their lives, and communities. Jeannie R. Regan-Dinius, Director of Special Initiatives for the Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, explore some common and no-so-common resources for finding your loved ones’ last resting place and what those places can tell you your ancestor and extended family. Presented by: Jeannie Regan-Dinius
