Church Record Sunday: Are your ancestors memorialized in church windows?
I was in a local church today and noticed a kind of "church record" I hadn't thought much about before. Each stained glass window had been given in memory of a specific person or people These often contain birth and death dates. A few even mentioned maiden names. If you know where your ancestors attended religious services - and if they had some money - the church windows may provide some hint to their past.
