Federal and private archives contain a treasure trove of information that can be mined for genealogical information. Knowing what kind of information is contained in various archives and how to access that information is the subject of this talk by a life long archivist. Preserving original records contained in one’s own files is also important. Tips for creating your own archive will be included in this lecture.
Come join us as we explore and learn how you can locate detailed information about your ancestors’ lives and how you can preserve records !
