Skagit Valley Genealogical Society May Meeting

Skagit Valley Genealogical Society Monthly Educational Program:
How to Read a Cemetery

BURLINGTON — Cemeteries are valuable resources for family historians. Gravestone markers contain clues to our ancestors’ lives. Come learn the basics of cemetery gravestone types and the mystery behind the icons on the stone. Best practices for recording cemetery inscriptions will also be discussed in preparation for a field trip to Hawthorne Cemetery in Mount Vernon for volunteers to “read” and record the gravestone inscriptions.

Join us for Skagit Valley Genealogical Society’s monthly program on Sat., May 11, 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Burlington Public Library, 820 E. Washington Ave. Admission is free and the public is invited.
