October 24, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

New England Historic Genealogical Society
99-101 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 2216 United States


When they survive, headstones can offer important clues to understanding the lives of those who came before us. Join the author of A Guide to Massachusetts Cemeteries, NEHGS Chief Genealogist David Allen Lambert, to learn how these memorials can shed new light on your ancestor’s life—everything from the type of stone used, the carvings, the position of the family plot, and the burial documents left behind can provide you with information.
