ZOOM “Explore U.S. Church Records: Find Family” Jacquie Shattner
February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Church records contain surprises, not just baptisms, marriages and deaths. They provide clues to much more, including town of origin and immigration information, how active families were in their church, and their financial situation. Churches predate government, and often have information on under-represented people; women, minorities, immigrants, and young children. Learn how to identify your ancestor’s place of worship, access surviving records and solve problems such as maiden names and overseas birthplaces.
