Billion-GravesMore Genealogy “Tips and Hints”

Our meeting November 13th will be a continuation of Peoria County Genealogical Society’s “Tips and Hints” Series. Accurately documenting the location of an ancestor’s tombstone is essential, especially in a large cemetery.

One such method of documenting is by giving a GPS location for the tombstone; however this method can also be questionable depending on the device used. Rita Marsh, our Society’s VP and Program Chair, will give a demonstration on a method she finds accurate documenting tombstones – it’s totally free and you don’t need a Smartphone to make it work. She will also demonstrate how to use “Find A Grave”, and the lesser known “Billion Graves” websites, which will also aid in locating your ancestor’s gravesites. Through Peoria County Genealogical Society’s “Tips and Hints” Series, members are continuing to share their research knowledge.

Join us Thursday, at 6:30pm, at the Peoria Public Library North Branch, at 3001 W. Grand Parkway off Townline Road behind Menard’s. The area is well lighted with parking close to the door. The public is always invited.

Special Note: November will be our last meeting for the year. We will take a few months off spending time with family during the holidays, then hibernating during the winter months. We will meet again Thursday, March 12, 1915. Watch for our PCGS Newsletter in late April for details.
