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.
