Join us via Zoom for a virtual genealogical program as part of our annual Find Your Ancestors series.
The ABC's and 123's of Researching Your Ancestor's School Records
The records of local public schools and universities can be valuable resources for finding information about your ancestors. Even if your ancestors didn't attend school, you would be surprised by what you can find in school records about them. This webinar will show you what types of school records there are and how to find them in repositories.
