RESEARCHING MORTUARY IRECORDS
Speaker: Sheila Wells
We all know how important mortuary records can be and the volume of information they can contain.
Harris Funeral Home has been in business in Berkeley for over sixty years and has, therefore, volumes of family data stored in those records. They are not only in the mortuary business, but they make a point of keeping "genealogical" records on the families they have served over the years. Wouldn't it be terrific if more mortuaries felt inclined to do the same?
You will be surprised to meet someone from a mortuary that is as interested in family genealogy as we are. Sheila will explain how the staff at Harris Funeral Home traces the families n their files and tell us about the data bases they are creating.
Meetings are held at the Oakland Family History Library, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland
Guests are always welcome! We would love to have you visit us!
