    My grndmother was told her 1893 adoption file burned in a courthouse fire. No one quetioned this until I began asking questions in 2013. Guess, what, it was a lie. No fire. The file was with the local historical society’s collection.

    Love the enthusiasm of the presenter for the subject! Unfortunately my genealogical research focuses on UK records so I’m less aware of some of the sources he mentioned, however the key principles still apply.

    I’ve got a lot of tips that will help me get started again on my research. I was getting frustrated in not knowing where to look. The information in this webinar has reinvigorated me to get moving again.

    Lots of great resources to consider; most of my black holes stem from records not existing — but usually due to the era when they were not kept, so hopefully this will lend some good insight to other places to look.
