An integrated approach to family research from the end of the Antebellum Period, through the Civil War and Reconstruction, finishing with the culmination of the Golden Age.  

We will explore methods of combining differing research strategies to better understand the context of the lives of your research targets, use this framework to formulate plans for breaking down brick walls, and how to launch your research deeper into the past with provable results.

10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Selby Public Library, 1331 First Street, Geldbart Auditorium, Main Floor, Sarasota, 34236
Church records are important component in genealogical research.  This is especially true in two major scenarios:
Tracing ancestors prior to establish of civil registration abroad and maintain vital records on the county and state level in the United States.
Documenting many major family related events in  a person’s life.

Religious institutions and entities were keeping track of the general population long before civil authorities assumed this responsibility.  This seminar will touch on the benefits that church records can offer to genealogical research.
