Two Genealogy Workshops in July

There are two genealogy workshops that you can take in July!

Getting the Most From Online Sources
The World Wide Web has been a boon to family historians, allowing “touch of a button” access to all sorts of information. But how do you know where you should go when hunting for your family’s history on the Web? This session will serve as an overview to resources available via the Web, how to evaluate them, and what is realistic to expect from your online experience when gathering stories and clues about your family.

Introduction to Land Records In Ohio
What does it mean to have an ancestor who bought land from the United States government or received a Revolutionary War bounty? When delving into land research, what are the differences between a bounty, a direct sale, a grant, and a homestead? This workshop points out where lands were available in Ohio to Revolutionary War veterans, describes how to determine who claimed Revolutionary bounty lands, and teaches how to locate individual claims. Emphasis is on the description of land survey, entry, and payment records at the Ohio Historical Society and how to best use them.
