Dead  Men  Do  Tell  Tales
Presented by Karen Fortin
Recreating 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
  Karen's passion for history and research led her to an interest in genealogy. She began volunteering with the Pinellas Genealogy Society in Largo, FL in 2012, and was the society's president from 2014-2017. Karen began providing genealogy and history presentations in 2016 and has lectured at various genealogical societies and public libraries, and for other interested organizations. One of her goals is to help people explore historical periods, places, and events so that they can better understand their ancestors and the world in which they lived.
