Using Probate Records in Your Family History Research
September 22 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT
An event every week that begins at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, repeating until September 29, 2021
Probate records are crucial—but sometimes overlooked—sources for family historians. Hiding in these legal documents may be full family groups, immediate and extended family connections, origins, and even maiden names. These sources may also be used as vital record substitutes and provide a glimpse into your ancestor’s property and worldly possessions. This three-week online course will provide an in-depth tutorial on how to understand, locate, and leverage wills, inventories, guardianships, and other probate records in your family history research.
This course includes three 90-minute classes; exclusive access to handouts and recordings of each presentation; and in-depth Q&A sessions with the instructors.
This program will be hosted via Zoom. Access information will be sent to participants prior to the first broadcast.
