The Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society will hold a free class on using Find A Grave on Saturday, July 19 at 10 am at the Crown Point Public Library (122 N. Main St., Crown Point IN). Linda Novotny and Marlene Polster will show you how to navigate the Find A Grave website, a free resource that was created to help find and record information about the final resting places of loved ones around the world. Sometimes contributors will include photos of the tombstone and of the person, as well as additional information about their family.
Novotny and Polster are both clerks in the Genealogy Department of the Valparaiso Public Library. Polster is also the Lake County Genealogist. This class is free and open to the public.
