We are excited to offer new and updated sessions of these two popular presentations. If you pre-ordered a copy, email me at mjnrootdig@gmail.com if you did not get your copy.

Introduction to US Probate Records

This session will provide attendees with an overview the US probate process and how records created fit into that entire process and the basic terminology required to understand and interpret the records correctly. Included will be a discussion of ways to interpret and understand the records, determining what additional records should be searched, and ways to access probate records—including search approaches and use of indexes. Handout included.

Introduction to Local US Court Records

This session will provide an overview of local courts in the United States and ways to locate and find information about applicable local court records for personal research. While all court cases can provide genealogically relevant information, this session will focus on those most likely to provide that information and provide examples of “non-typical cases” that were genealogically relevant. Included will be a discussion of ways to interpret and understand the records, determining what additional records should be searched, and ways to access probate records—including search approaches and use of indexes. Handout included.
