ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Epidemics, and Pandemics all affected our ancestors, either directly or indirectly. Lifestyles were altered by major illnesses. Politics, religion, and economics all played a part in eradicating these scourges from our predecessors’ lives, as well as how they affect your research. Funeral and cemetery records, as well as the ways of handling the dead, will also be discussed.
