Courthouse and Archive Genealogy Research
Did you know…Just 1 hour per day will make you an expert in Family History and Genealogy research in less than 3 years! Except for jury duty–which today many American citizens escape–you may never have been inside a county courthouse. And the increasing number of records in print and online may, on the surface, seem to fill your need for record access as you trace your ancestors, without a personal visit to the courthouse.
This is my own personal invitation to you to join us for a visit to the Courthouse. And to other archives and libraries “close to home.” Learn first-hand what records are in the courthouse, how they are allotted to different offices under the watchful eye of an elected county official, what they contain that is of interest and use to genealogists. This experience will change the way you do research–we can guarantee it.
Across America, there are more than 11,000 courthouses where the key genealogy documents were created and still, today, are preserved for your use. Counties are combining all local archives and research facilities under one roof–to save taxpayers money and to make research and record preservation easier.
Come along with us on special research retreats–where we introduce to record keepers: Meet county and local clerks who are friendly, helpful, and interested in the records they preserve and present to you. Scan the pages of the original recordings. Read the old handwriting. Look at the volumes used anciently that have often been beautifully and lovingly restored so they can meet the needs of 21st century legal documentation. And your genealogy!
Please don’t say to yourself, “I have no ancestors in this County and never has my family been connected to anyone there.”
To my knowledge, no one in my family background had any connection with Summit County Utah. Yet, I found my husband’s Jack Slade and my Mother’s Mitchell and Kewley families documented there! They had never lived there either. I made photocopies from books and records that are completely new to my genealogy–and I have been researching since I was 12 years old.
I invite you to this special learning experience in a “down-home” and close-to-home environment with great food and genealogists who are as interested in your story as their own. Your favorite Kentucky genealogist–Arlene Eakle. http://arleneeakle.com
