“Coffin Maker, Undertaker & Funeral Director:
The Other Death Record Sources”
March 2, 2011 — The Shenandoah Valley Ge nealogical Society announces its April program, “Coffin Maker, Undertaker & Funeral Director: The Other Death Record Sources,” to be presented by Chuck Mason on Wednesday, April 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Handley Regional Library, 100 W. Piccadilly St., Winchester, Virginia (downstairs).
Researching funeral home records is a much-neglected ge
nealogical tool. These seldom-tapped records can be a goldmine for the researcher, often yielding information unobtainable elsewhere. Chuck Mason will be presenting the types of information that can be found in funeral records and other death record sources which may help one discover more about their ancestors.
