Finding Pre-1850 Era Ancestors

If you have a question about this event, Please contact us

When

From: 10/12/2017 06:30 PM

To: 10/12/2017 07:30 PM

We know how challenging it can be to trace pre-1850 ancestors due to the lack of data in the census and the scarcity of sources identifying women and children during this time frame. This session will explain cluster research and the use of sources such as tax records, different census records, and probate records to find these elusive ancestors.
