Ancestors in Context: Putting History in Your Family History with Daniel Earl  
Zoom webinar - registration is required Click here to register.

Our ancestors had rich, full lives between census years. This lecture will show you four types of records you can use to flesh out your ancestors' lives. I'll use examples from my own family to illustrate how I used these records to add depth to my own family history and how you can do the same!
