That’s in the Archives: Digging Deeper into Archived Records
Genealogists use archives every day to locate records about their ancestors. Are there records that you are not accessing because you don’t know they exist? Not all records are online, indexed or microfilmed. Digging deeper in the local archives to find unique and relatively unknown records just might be the next step in your genealogy research. This presentation can be viewed by any audience and is not geographic specific.
