Larry W. Thomas (live over Zoom): “Reaping a Harvest With Land Records”
 
Land records are an often-overlooked resource. Even researchers with over 20 years of experience have sometimes never investigated land records.
 
These records may contain details on family members, family dynamics, occupations, wealth, gifts of land, marital separations, association memberships and much more.
 
Join us as Larry W. Thomas presents a program that will certainly put you on the path to discover more information about your ancestors through land records.
