Burned County Research Methodology
04-11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm
Lecture discusses the effective use of surviving county records and then focuses on Federal and state records that provide genealogical information such as military, pensions, Southern Claims, Serial Set and state land grants that help fill in research gaps. Non-Government sources such as church records, manuscripts, cemetery records and local histories are also reviewed.
