Program Description

Event Details

While Ancestry.com is one of the most useful tools for genealogical research, if you haven’t ventured much beyond the confines of your own computer, you have no idea what you’re missing. A trip through an attic, while dusty perhaps, can yield never before seen or published records. The courthouse holds much more than the tax and land records. Major archives held by the state, county, town or university often pay the best dividends for your research time and money, but archives also can be found in businesses, schools, clubs, churches, hospitals, and a whole host of organizations. There is great value in getting out into the community where your ancestors once lived. An experience you’ll miss if you do all your research from your desk.
