4:00 PM - 5:15 PMResearching Historic Maps: A virtual talk by Sara Campbell



Location:  Online via Zoom
Contact:  Eileen Crosby
Description:  

Researching Historic Maps
A virtual talk by Sara Campbell

For the family researcher, learning about the places our ancestors lived helps put their lives in perspective. This talk helps us understand the history of map-making, categories of maps that can be used, and where to look for maps relevant to one’s research. Correlating maps with other records of the time period helps us find details that might not have been uncovered otherwise.  Select local and regional maps will be used to illustrate the information historic maps can and cannot provide.

Register here for this online event

(your registration confirmation and join link will arrive within 24 hours)

Made possible through CARES Act funding to the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Location:  Online via Zoom
Contact:  Eileen Crosby
Description:  

Using Land Records in Genealogical Research
A virtual talk by Sara Campbell
Land records take us a step beyond the basic sources for genealogical research: vital records and census records. Deeds can help us understand our ancestors' movements when buying and selling land, identify neighbors, and sometimes uncover an elusive spouse. Digging into these records should not be any more intimidating than any other source. This talk introduces the specialized terminology one encounters in deed documents and how to understand it.  Sara Campbell will review a variety of deeds and explore what can be found on line as well as in person in repositories. 

Register for Using Land Records in Genealogical Research here
You will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of your registration.

Made possible through CARES Act funding to the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Researching Historic Maps: A virtual talk by Sara Campbell

Researching Historic Maps
A virtual talk by Sara Campbell

For the family researcher, learning about the places our ancestors lived helps put their lives in perspective. This talk helps us understand the history of map-making, categories of maps that can be used, and where to look for maps relevant to one’s research. Correlating maps with other records of the time period helps us find details that might not have been uncovered otherwise.  Select local and regional maps will be used to illustrate the information historic maps can and cannot provide.

Using Land Records in Genealogical Research A virtual talk by Sara Campbell

Using Land Records in Genealogical Research
A virtual talk by Sara Campbell
Land records take us a step beyond the basic sources for genealogical research: vital records and census records. Deeds can help us understand our ancestors' movements when buying and selling land, identify neighbors, and sometimes uncover an elusive spouse. Digging into these records should not be any more intimidating than any other source. This talk introduces the specialized terminology one encounters in deed documents and how to understand it.  Sara Campbell will review a variety of deeds and explore what can be found on line as well as in person in repositories.
