“Revelers, hogkillers and disobedient children: Early Illinois Laws” WEBINAR

February 12 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Judy G. Russell presenter

The laws our ancestors lived by tell their own story of life in earlier times, and, from the very first territorial statues, enacted in 1809, the choices made by legislators about what laws were needed give a rich and deep context to family history. Using early Illinois laws as genealogical resources, we are able to tell the stories of a time when the big concerns were Blue Laws, wild animals, and children needing humbling.

Register in advance.  HINT:  login to the webinar EARLY – access begins at 7:30 pm Central. Once the “room” fills up with 500 attendees, others attempting to join will receive a “room full” message.
