Courthouses - Where Most Genealogical Problems are Solved
Monday, August 2
Courthouses - Where Most Genealogical Problems are Solved  (Program)
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Virtual Presentation - Zoom & Facebook

By Patti Lee Hobbs, CG

Because ancestors created the most records in the places they lived, the local county courthouse possibly holds the answers to your genealogical questions. Not only can the records directly or indirectly identify familial relationships, but they also help us to dig deeper—beyond vital events—to learn more about our ancestors. This session describes types of courthouse records, how to access them, and what you can expect to find.
