Many of our ancestors came to this county because of the availability of land—it was the original American dream! This session will explore the basics of land research.
What’s So Special About Special Collections?

Cite Your Sources!
Keeping records of where we find information about our ancestors is an important, but often neglected, aspect of genealogy. The presentation will provide an overview of source citations, including a discussion of the purposes of source citations, basic formats, and some tricks to make the task easier!
