About this webinar

Often, when the records of family members can’t be easily found, a review of fictive kin and other connections might bring those missing individuals into view. Let’s look at some cases when broadening our focus might bring the target directly into our view.

    Learned a lot in today’s webinar, including several new resources for me to explore!

    Mark Lowe’s webinars always get a 5 from me. He talks about the areas where most of my families came from on their way to Arkansas and today was no different. I saw the name J. W. Dowland, J.P., Gibson Co. Tennessee on one of the documents he showed today, which is one of the families that I am still working on. From “The Dismal Swamp Lady”.

    If Mark says to research the in-laws, to me that means I must research the in-laws 🙂

    As always, Mark is an excellent speaker and offers to many different avenues for research that so many of us don’t think of traveling down.

    Mark gives me new momentum with each lecture. I need to go back and listen to his early lectures before I became a Legacy member.

    It made very clear to me that, yes, I must branch out my searches (even though I’ve tried to avoid it)! ;o)

    Thank you Mark! Now – I need to go back and look at Biographies, Religious Periodicals, and Confederate Veteran Widow Applications. I had not even thought of that one!
