Find ancestors in cemeteries in Asheboro library’s ‘Grave Encounters’

ASHEBORO – Go on some ‘Grave Encounters’ as you learn how to find your ancestors in cemeteries, in a genealogy class from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, October 11, at the Asheboro Public Library

Librarian and genealogist Ann Palmer will discuss how to get as much information as you can from a cemetery visit.

“Nothing in your genealogical research will connect you to your ancestors more than to stand where they are buried and to see important pieces of their life carved into stone,” Palmer says.

Topics to be covered include locating your ancestor’s gravesite; reading and recording tombstone engravings; finding unknown ancestors; and photography tips. A handout will be provided with a bibliography and web links.

The class is free and the public is invited. Call 336-318-6815 for more information.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street.
