Event description

Description

The death of an ancestor may not be the end of your research, but perhaps just the beginning. In this talk, John Marsden, the author of Forgotten Fields - A History of Manchester's Burial Grounds, will discuss the records which are generated by a person's death and how these may be used to look for new lines of research. The talk will centre on graveyard memorials and newspaper death notices but will also touch upon death certificates, wills, burial registers and other resources. Questions such as "When and where did (s)he die?" and "Where was (s)he buried?" will be discussed.

These talks are aimed at people new to family history research or those who simply wish to refresh their knowledge. The talk will be held in the Performance Space on the ground floor of Manchester Central Library and will last from 10.30am until approximately 12.30pm.. The talks are free to Society members but non-members are most welcome to attend for a small charge of £3.00 (refundable for anyone who joins on the day).
