We have two new webinars for our genealogy friends this summer season. So even with all the barbecues, hikes, and family fun, we hope there is still some time for family history.
Summer Guest Presentation:
New England Land, Probate, and Tax Records
By Marilyn Markham, SLC Family History Library
Date: Saturday, July 10, 2010

The New England states are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. New England has a rich genealogical heritage. Some of the best records for genealogists are land, probate and tax records. In New England, these records are especially useful, often surprisingly so. This class will discuss how to find, use, and interpret these wonderful records.
