April 2023 Monthly Meeting – Using Find a Grave to Locate More

Central Rappahannock Regional Library Main Branch 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA, United States

Researchers use FindaGrave.com to locate the final resting places of family members.  The memorials will often display pictures of the headstones and can list the family details. It can be frustrating when details such as spouses, parents and/or siblings are not there. Trish will show you have to add information to these records. She will also show you how to search the cemetery which may help you locate other family members.
