This Sunday, November 15 at 3:00 pm EST, I am excited to offer my first Zoom Webinar: “Fruit of the Earth: Using Deed Records to Uncover Your Ancestors.”

Deed records are one of genealogy’s most trusted and voluminous record sets. But the legal jargon can be confusing, and besides, what if your ancestor didn’t own land? Come and learn how to use deed records in new and exciting ways and unlock brick walls about your family and the communities in which they lived.

This lecture also includes content about researching potential slaveholders in deeds and African-Americans after emancipation.

Your $10 registration fee includes a handout, and I will select a random registrant to win their choice of the Reclaiming Kin book or 30 minutes of personalized research guidance!

SPOTS ARE LIMITED! Secure your seat today by REGISTERING today.

This is the first in many to come, and I’m even planning to bring my entire Advanced African-American Research Class online in the new year.

I have done several posts on Reclaiming Kin using deed records. See:
