About this webinar

Participants will learn the basics of researching their Wisconsin ancestors starting with the early history as part of the Northwest Territory up through the present-day. While many of our ancestors may have settled in or passed through Wisconsin, finding them and the records left behind is another story. Wisconsin research offers certain challenges and it helps to know the strategies needed to tackle those records. You'll not only get a quick lesson in Wisconsin history, you'll also learn about special record sets and resources unique to the Badger State.
