Genealogy Workshop: Using Land Records in Researching Family History (in-person)
Land records are an important, but sometimes overlooked resource for many family historians. Hidden in the “metes and bounds” and other legalese, there can be critical clues to identifying extended family members, the location of ancestral homelands, and family relationships. Join Lindsay Fulton, the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s vice president of research and library services, to learn how you can locate, read, and apply the information contained in land records to your own family history. The cost of this workshop is $35 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society; $50 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and advanced registration is required. Register through Eventbrite.com or by calling 603-228-6688.
