SEEKING MY SOUTHERN KIN
Going beyond vital records is a necessity in finding our Southern ancestors. But where do we look for those records that will give us more information on the lives of our kin? With this presentation, we will take a look at various record types that will yield the gems so invaluable to our family history research.
