Researching Before 1850

Program Type:

Genealogy, Older Adults



Program Description

Event Details

As with all genealogy, we must go backward step by step. So we start with the 1850 census to gather birth years and birth locations. Then we locate these family members in wills, land records, Revolutionary War pension applications (generally filed in the 1830s), and then specific colonial records.  This class will help researches find and document their Ancestors who were living before the first formal Census records were created.
