Event Details

The Colorado Genealogical Society 5th Saturday Special Event is pleased to have Annette Burke Lyttle as our featured speaker. She will speak on both "Bounty Land: It’s Complicated" & "Dive Deeper into FamilySearch.

Bounty Land: It’s Complicated

Bounty land was offered as compensation for soldiers who fought in the Revolution, War of 1812, and Mexican War, but veterans of these wars didn’t simply take up residence on their land grants. Some did, but many people who weren’t veterans ended up with these lands. Learn about the laws, all the people who got involved, and where to find the records.

Dive Deeper into FamilySearch

FamilySearch has millions of records. Putting a name in the search form only gets you a small percentage of their indexed records. Beyond that, they have unindexed collections and other digital materials that will never show up in a general search. Learn how to dive deeply into FamilySearch’s record collections and come up with amazing finds.
