How to resolve research DEAD ENDS using grave monuments

Often, when doing family history research, a point is reached where all the normal research resources produce blank results - DEAD ENDS. This where grave monuments can help.

The reason for this is that grave monuments often provide information that is not easily found within other resources. Much of this is due to the relationship information recorded on the monument. For instance, a husband and wife may be listed as the parents of a child.

Another thing that often causes Dead Ends is the lack of information about a woman's maiden name. If the GPR finds a grave monument that mentions either a married woman's brother or father then it will automatically asign their surname as the woman's maiden name.
