September, 2018, Meeting: Unlocking the Cemetery Gate

Mark your calendar to join us for the first general meeting of the 2018 -2019 program year of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society 

Our speaker, Ms. Brenda Sullivan of  The Gravestone Girls  will be presenting "Unlocking the Cemetery Gate: The Cemetery as a Genealogical Resource."  This presentation is targeted to genealogists interested in learning to "read" the cemetery for clues and information. Using both direct observation and deductive reasoning from objects such as writing art, geology, and the cemetery landscape, much new insight can be revealed.  That insight can answer questions, create new inquiries, and open doors for further detective work. Brenda promises to get you looking at these spaces, both old and new, as a valuable resource for your data collection activities.

Brenda Sullivan is from Central Massachusetts and has been exploring cemeteries most of her life. To become better acquainted with our speaker, you can read more about her here.  She should be an entertaining and informative speaker.

The meeting will take place in our usual location, the auditorium of the  Brewster Ladies Library, Rte 6A, Brewster.  As in the past, the public is welcome to join us. All members and guests are invited to arrive at 9:30 AM for socializing and refreshments. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 10AM.
Hope to see you there !
