Posting this for our friends at the British Isles Family History Society USA:
"Find A Grave: A Virtual Cemetery on the Internet"
by Cheri Mello will be the topic of the January British Isles Family History Society - U.S.A. general meeting on Sunday, 22 January 2012 at the Los Angeles Family History Library, 10741 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90025, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The FindAGrave website can be an invaluable tool for genealogists since its memorials may contain rich content such as photos, biographies, and dates. Cheri will tell us how to join FindAGrave, search, create memorials, add to other memorials, and create your own virtual cemetery! Cheri Mello is a family genealogist who has been researching for 19 years.
"Getting Ready to Travel with Your Genealogy" is the title of the workshop after the break. Nancy Carlberg will provide hints for organizing research before you travel to a Family History Library or any genealogy library.
