About this webinar

They stand there behind those gates: marble and granite memorials to those who went before. The stones in those cemeteries and the stories they tell for our families are of crucial importance to genealogists. How can we best get access to the land where they stand, and photograph them to capture the stories they tell?

    These tips about how to take photographs was invaluable. Thought a lot about the story. I thought about a small cemetery I went to In New Mexico and seeing the small cement handmade stones of the small babies and children. It was touching to see how important it was to those poor families, many of my relatives were among them, wanted to let the world know this child existed and was buried there.

    Excellent content and terrific tips for getting the “right” shot at the right time! Just the tips on using light were worth the price of admission!
