Bryan Mulcahy: Using Church Records to Document Life Events  (General Meeting)
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Selby Public Library, 1331 First Street, Geldbart Auditorium, Main Floor, Sarasota, 34236
Church records contain information about births, marriages, deaths, baptisms, and christenings. Prior to the 1800s (when many Western countries began taking censuses), church records were the best source for finding information about the common people.  They were often charged by governmental entities with keeping track of the general population. Churches were often the focal point for the social and educational activities for most families and individuals. This is why most professionals regard church records as  the most reliable documentation of major life events from a historical perspective.

 

Bryan is the Adult Reference, Genealogy, and Literacy Librarian for Lee County Library System since 1990.  He was the Adult Reference, Genealogy, and Circulation Librarian for SW Georgia Regional Library (Bainbridge) and Moultrie-Colquitt County County, Georgia 1984-1990.  Bryan was associated with The Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library from September 1988-March 1990. He was also the Reference, Circulation Assistant, FSU Law Library – Tallahassee, FL  1982-1984. He obtained his B.A. and MLS from Florida State University in 1977-1978, 1982-1984, respectively, and his A.A from Miami Dade Community College in 1975-1976.
