For generations, land has meant opportunity, independence, and even survival in America. It is what drove many of our ancestors to immigrate and what motivated some to migrate across the country. While land records are essential to our family history research, they are often overlooked or misunderstood. Hidden in the legalese and metes and bounds, there can be critical clues to extended family members and family relationships, the location of ancestral homelands, and why our ancestors move from point A to point B. From colonial land grants and charters to proprietorship records and federal land programs, this online conference will give you the historical context of land records in America, the tools to find and decipher deeds, and strategies for leveraging land records in your family history research.
Your participation in this online conference grants you access to 5+ hours of pre-recorded presentations by renowned speakers, authors, and professional genealogists; handouts, slides, worksheets, and other resources; attend a 90-minute live Q&A with instructors; and take advantage of special offers and virtual door prizes. You will have access to all materials until the end of September 2021.
