Guest Speaker Jeanette Shiel Session 1: Maps: Time and Place!
Locating ancestors can be frustrating. It is essential to place them in the correct geographical area at the right time, but county and state borders changed. Our country expanded. Families moved. Sometimes families appeared to have moved but did not. Using maps, both historical and current can assist you in search and understanding where to look for records. This session will explore the various types of maps, how to use them to locate your family as well as how to access them.
Session 2: Using Tax Records in Your Genealogy
Tax records are often overlooked but can provide insight into the details of our ancestors’ lives. Sometimes we just need that one record to help us prove residency, age or relationships and you might be surprised just how tax records can make those connections. Tax records can also reveal economic clues to community status as well as lead to land to records.
This event is open to everyone. Registration information will be forthcoming.
