Monthly Program

Join us for a presentation by Rebecca Koford, CG, CGL

Session 1:  Land Records : Rich Resources for Relationships. 

Any family research that does not include deed record searches is often incomplete.  We will discuss the basics of deed records, understanding platting, and show examples of how deeds can be valuable sources for relationship clues

Session 2:  Indirect Evidence: Finding What Was Not Written.

This lecture will discuss how and understanding of indirect evidence is such a valuable instrument in your methodology tool-kit.  We will use case studies to examine methods and sources that can help us build a case for finding ancestral relationships
