New York: Cemetery research, Nov. 8

Readers in New York may be interested in this upcoming Westchester County Genealogical Society meeting at 10am, Saturday, November 8.

"Gravely Speaking: the Who, What, When, Where & Why of Effective Cemetery Research" is Jo Heffernan's program. While not focused on Jewish cemetery research, the session seems to offer methodology that can be transplanted to cemeteries of all religions and ethnicities.

She is the author of several articles for both Italian Genealogical Group (IGG) and the Hudson County Genealogical Society of New Jersey. A teacher, Heffernan also served on the IGG's board for 10 years.

The meeting is at Aldersgate Methodist Church, Dobbs Ferry.

Check the society's homepage for more details of the meeting as well as other interesting future programs on such topics as City Directories, Censuses, Immigration, and the New York 1890 Police Census.
