Our most recent past meeting was held on October 9th 2019 at The Derryfield in Manchester, NH.
The presentations and discussion were thought provoking and very informative. We would like to give a special thanks to Holly Haas, Professional Genealogist and Candia Cemetery Trustee. Her presentation was a great opportunity for our cemetery professionals to see how they may be better prepared to assist individuals with genealogical research, how to leverage technology for the benefit of the public and the cemetery, as well as what documentation and records are most desirable to include with interment records, to benefit future generations of cemetery professionals and genealogists alike.
In addition to that great discussion, we had another insightful segment where current cemetery improvement projects, focusing on funding for old stone repair and maintenance. Many members shared what they were doing at their particular cemeteries and what has or has not helped them with varying aspects of these projects.
