  • Many of our practitioners run family history classes in their libraries, teaching folk methodologies and introducing them to sources – in that way we grow our user base – and the use of these resources. This presentation, which I’ve used a few times now, seeks to guide researchers to flesh out the base information, and suggest further avenues of research. It’s not concerned with funeral customs – a fascinating study in itself, or with the study of the memorials themselves, their construction and symbolism, but is pitched at family historians – what they need to know.
