  • Good starts make ancestory searches better

    Yesterday, I had the opportunity to give a genealogy presentation to members of a Airstream RV enthusiasts group attending the 2013 “Unbridled Spirit” Rally for Region 5 members of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International. The rally goes through Saturday at General Butler State Resort Park.

    I had a great time, but working on the presentation was one huge undertaking. It’s stunning the volume of public records available online from local, state and federal government agencies and from private historical societies and universities.
