Research in Federal Records: Some Assembly Required

by Malissa Ruffner, JD, CG   |   Intermediate   |   Advanced   |   BCG   |   Board for Certification of Genealogists   |   Federal Records   |

Federal records offer genealogical gold with both direct references to our ancestors and rich contextual background information. But it can be daunting to explore record groups that are not readily available online. The wide array of tools includes paper finding aids, preliminary inventories, online indexes, web guides, and published articles, as well as the National Archives Catalog. Malissa will offer a framework and several case studies that highlight the integration of multiple research tools.
