Funeral Register (Guest Books)

Originally posted to blog on on June 20, 2009

I was at my Aunt’s house last week and remembered that she had the Funeral Register (or Guest Book) from my paternal grandfather’s wake in 1964.  I sat down with her and my mother and we went through the book.  What a great find!  Not only did it help them remember stories, but we ran across names of cousins and spouses on my father’s side I didn’t know about before.  

Ask around and see if one of your family members is in possession of the Guest Book from one of your relative’s wake.  It’s a great way to help your older relative’s remember stories you would love to hear.

Good luck with your Greek genealogy research.
