What’s New: "Tombstone of Your Ancestors"

Welcome to this week’s SCDL Tree Talk Tuesday. Each month we like to try and feature a new book to our collection. This month with All Hallows Eve or Halloween coming up a time when we remember the dearly departed. I  thought it would be appropriate to feature a book about Tombstone inscriptions. The book is titled “Tombstone of Your Ancestors” by Louis S. Schafer.

Louis S. Schaefer’s book was originally published in 1991 and re-published by Heritage Books in 2007.  His book is intended to help those in the “…hobby of locating, deciphering, and collecting gravestone inscriptions and carvings.” Making it a great resource for the family historian as well as an interesting read.

The Genealogy Department has two copies of this book, one that circulates and one that does not. The following link will take you to the online catalog to check out the book. http://catalog.starklibrary.org/iii/encore/record/C__Rb1813502?lang=eng 

Until Next week.
Happy Ancestor Hunting!
