GSBC General Meeting
The Last Vital Event: Finding Even More Beyond the Death Certificate
Diana Crisman Smith
Monday, 24 January 2022 @ 7pm Eastern
Online—all are welcome. Registration required.

Do you stop searching when you find a person's death record???  NO! There is much more that can be gleaned from other records. Some are actually before death (such as a will); others are after death, such as cemetery records, funeral home records, obituaries, probates, and more. Come join us to look into some of these other records.
