“Heritagequest Online Part 4: City Directories and Death Records”

Donald R. Snow

Categories: IR, RR

Talk Abstract:
HeritageQuest Online (HQO) is a website that is free through libraries by using your public library card bar code. It has many family history resources and you can use it at home or at Family History Centers for free. This class is Part 4 of a series and deals with their city directories and death records. City directories are like telephone books without the phone numbers. The death records on HQO include the Social Security Death Index and a link to FinaAGrace. There are many miscellaneous death record collections and a few newspapers with obituaries. Other classes in this series have dealt with family history books, U.S. Revolutionary War records, and U.S. and Canada censuses. The notes for the class, with active links and related articles, are posted on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
