Branching Out: Burial and Cemetery Records

This popular talk on burial and cemetery records is being repeated. Durham County Record Office will host the event on Monday 10 February from 6pm to 8pm, and again on Thursday 13 February from 10am to 12 noon.

It will explore the wide range of records that need searching to locate where your ancestors were buried.

Dawn Layland, education and outreach archivist, said: “Family historians often want to know where their ancestors are buried and this talk will show you how to go about tracking them down.
Over the course of an hour, we will explain how best to determine where relatives are buried, looking at what records exist, where they can be found and what information they contain.”

Afterwards, visitors can spend a second hour researching in the the Record Office’s facilities, with an archivist to offer advice.

Tickets for the session are £10 each: you must book in advance here, or call 03000 267 619. See all other events here.

Location: Durham County Record Office, County Hall, Durham DH1 5UL
