October 2, 10:30 a.m. - Genealogy Series: Vital Records - Beyond Births, Marriages and Deaths.
Presenter: Nancy Lyons
Vital records of birth, marriage, and death allow us to document the dates and parent-child relationships of each generation in a family tree. As primary sources these records offer dates and places of the event, parent names, and places of origin. Information from these documents can help lead a researcher to other valuable records. This presentation will include visual examples and handouts concerning where to locate these genealogical gems, and how to utilize the information they contain. This is the third workshop in the series of genealogy workshops presented Nancy Lyons, a highly respected genealogist whose programs have been well received by beginners and advanced genealogists alike.
