Summary NoteSummary: "Cemeteries are not just hallowed and mysterious places, they are also repositories of genealogical knowledge, their tombstones providing crucial information ranging from the name of the deceased and his birth and death dates to a bonanza of biographical detail that often includes the names of parents, children, and spouse. But tombstones are more like artifacts than documents, and they require a different approach and give rise to different expectations. In its now familiar format, this new "Genealogy at a Glance" publication addresses these grave issues, expertly covering the unique aspects of cemetery research in four specially laminated pages" --provided by the publisher.
