"Using Early American Records to Tell the Story of a Pioneer"
- Presented by Diane Barbour
Using the life of Amasa Delano Sproat, we explore records that are available during the time-period before 1850 and the every name census. Usually a difficult period for genealogy research, the participant will learn what records are available and how to obtain them. This program will help with that early American research.
