Cemetery Research Tips & More in the October 2012 Family Tree Magazine Podcast

By Grace Dobush

The October 2012 Family Tree Magazine podcast, hosted by Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems, celebrates Halloween with cemetery research tips, including:

  • Advice for cracking the “tombstone code”—the symbolism in carvings and inscriptions—from contributing editor Sharon DeBartolo Carmack
  • How to preserve the genealogy and history information cemeteries hold, and share those details with others, from Family Tree University instructor and Find A Grave volunteer Diana Crisman Smith
  • Tips for visiting a cemetery (what you can do from home, what to bring and what to look for once you’re there) from Family Tree University Cemetery Research 101 course instructor Midge Frazel
  • Tombstone rubbing dos and don’ts with Family Tree Magazine publisher and editorial director Allison Dolan

And Lisa and I chat about some recent big acquisitions in the genealogy world.
