Lecture no. 10 from the course: Discovering Your Roots: An Introduction to Genealogy
Taught by Professor John Philip Colletta | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
Good genealogists always take advantage of local sources outside the courthouse as well, including state archives, which hold records that resulted between the administration of state laws. Here, you’ll learn how to tap into the information found in original sources (such as census and military records) and derivative sources (including maps and newspapers).
