Cemetery research videos

DearREADERS,
Graveyards provide challenges to the best of us, and recent online video offerings tell the tale. Thanks to the Og Blog Newsletter's recent special announcement, we learn of several offerings designed to settle some of the myths around ancestral burials. Every stone has a story. See:

Down Under Utah: A Soldier's Story
Genealogists Kory Meyerink and Nancy NeSmith explore the touching story of a soldier buried in Spanish Fork City Cemetery in Utah.

Down Under Utah: Icelandic Minister. Genealogists Kory Meyerink and Nancy NeSmith explore the interesting story of an Icelandic minister buried in Spanish Fork Cemetery in Utah.

Down Under Florida: The Miltons The Genealogy Guys, George Morgan and Drew Smith, take us Down Under Tampa, Florida to learn more about the tragedy behind the Milton family tombstones.

Down Under Florida: The Ashley Family The Genealogy Guys, George Morgan and Drew Smith, take us down under Tampa, Florida as they uncover the surprising history of the "master and servant" buried beneath the Ashley family monument.

Down Under Florida: The Flying Zacchinis Ever heard of the Flying Zacchinis? Any idea why they might have a cannon on their headstone? The Genealogy Guys, George Morgan and Drew Smith, take us down under Tampa to learn more about this famous family.

Genealogists may use family stories and clues provided on tombstones to learn more about earlier generations but these videos point to the use of surviving church and public records from the time period when each ancestor walked on the face of the earth.

Happy family tree climbing!
