Learn how to trace the movements of your ancestors from librarian and genealogist Tina Beaird.
Librarian and genealogist Tina Beaird will discuss the usefulness of different types of maps, including aerial and bird's-eye maps, as well as cadastral, enumeration, and fire insurance maps. She will give suggestions on how to trace your ancestors using land records available through multiple government agencies such as local and county tax assessors, county clerks, circuit court offices, and land use departments. Tina will also provide suggestions on how to track resources using non-governmental sources like libraries, archives, and historical societies.
