Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn some historical funeral, burial, and mourning practices. They will also learn about death records and the information they contain. Students may wish to explore death records in their own families.
I have an associate's degree in family history research and I'm a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
No homework will be given, but some students may wish to explore death records of their own ancestors.
Students who wish to be extra spooky when sharing ghost stories may wish to bring a flashlight or an extra lamp.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:

1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
