Background | Search With a long tradition both in the United States and Europe dating back to the 1800's, funeral cards (also sometimes called mass, mourning or remembrance cards) are an excellent source of information for genealogists. While not a traditional "vital record", they often provide great clues like death and birth dates, name of the cemetery where the deceased was interred, name of the funeral home, and sometimes even a photo of the ancestor.

Broad Name Search Begin by searching the website for your family records using broad queries. Remember, less is often times more. If your ancestor has an unusual first or last name, try searching the genealogy archives for one name at a time. Then refine your family search by adding additional information such as date range, occupation and location. Note that using both first and last name search fields will return genealogy records in which the surname is automatically "near2" the first name.

I was lucky enough to attend a great workshop this past weekend on Advanced Autosomal DNA with genetic genealogist CeCe Moore at the Association of Professional Genealogist's Professional Management Conference. Not only are the DNA testing companies updating the analysis tools that they offer, but a number of great 3rd-party tools are also available. These tools exist to help you learn something from those "cousin matches" by identifying and associating specific segments of DNA segments with specific ancestors. By comparing matching DNA segments you can sometimes determine which ancestor donated which particular segment. Here's a number of fun tools and explanations to get you started! There are charts for examining x-DNA inheritance as well!
