In addition to locating your ancestors’ graves and gathering birth & death information from the headstones, have you also checked with the cemetery office to see if additional information exists?  Have you contacted the funeral home to see if they’ve maintained records?  Have you searched online for your ancestors’ graves to see if others are also researching the same families?  Find photos, family trees, obituaries and death certificates in your cemetery & funeral home research using tips & techniques provided in the handouts.

During the fall of 2021, the Dexter District Library will require registration for all indoor, in-person programs.  Registrants will need to register all members of their party.  During this time, only pre-registered attendees will be seated.  To provide for adequate social distancing, the Library will need to limit the number of in-person attendees at each program.  Past attendance patterns for in-person events would frequently exceed current COVID-19 capacity limits.  Walk-ins cannot be accommodated.  The Library will continue to monitor COVID-19 conditions and the Library Board will review these requirements on a monthly basis.

This event has room for 25 people. There are currently 6 people registered.
