Using Local Government Records for Local and Family History Webinar

The historical records of towns, villages, cities, counties, school districts and other local governments are among the most amazing treasures for those conducting family and local history. They have the ability to paint beautiful panoramas, providing detail and color to otherwise bland lists of names, dates and places. But accessing these records, knowing what is available and where to find them, can be rather daunting.

This one-hour webinar will outline the types of historical records available at many local governments. It will explore where you may find them and the kinds of information they contain. We will also discuss some of the challenges and approaches you might use to successfully access these treasures.

This webinar will be really valuable for researchers, historians, and for all individuals who care for and make accessible historical records in local governments.

Workshop Type: Webinar
Intended Audience: Local Governments
