Finding Non-Traditional Records
We all know that vital records, census records, etc. are the go-tos for genealogical information. But what else is out there that might give you those needed bits of information, and how do you find those records? Jessica Trotter, a trained archivist, librarian, and genealogist, will talk about identifying additional records to look for and offer some strategies for locating them.
