Held in the performance space Manchester Central Library at 10:30 am

A new talk by John Marsden

The death of an ancestor might not be the end of the research but perhaps the beginning. In this talk, John Marsden will discuss the records that are generated by a person's death and how they may be used for new lines of research. The talk will centre on graveyard memorials and newspaper notices but also on death certificates, wills, burial registers, and other resources. Questions such as "When and where did (s)he die?" and "Where was (s)he buried?" will be discussed.
