Monday, 30-Sep-19 at 10:00 AM. Dead Men Do Tell Tales--Reconstructing life in a community using death certificates. Death certificates can tell us a lot about how our ancestors lived and died. When looked at as a group they can also tell us about life and death in their communities. This presentation focuses on an analysis of death certificates from Attleboro, Massachusetts over a five-year period, and shows how they can provide us with a window into the lives of the people who lived there. Instructor: Fortin, Local History Room, Largo Library.
