Guest Speaker: Karen Theriot Reader

“Find A Grave” is a free resource for finding the final resting places of famous folks, friends and family members. It is a very popular website that allows the public to access and add to an online database of cemetery records.   With over 143 million grave records available worldwide, it is an invaluable tool which Karen will navigate us through.
