Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research

will present a live online
zoom seminar:

Unusual Source Records for Genealogical Research
– or, this is Some Cool Stuff!

Most of us use the common sources like census, land records, wills, probate, ship passengers lists and vital records when working on our genealogy.  However, there are many other source materials for family history research often not thought of, or out of the mainstream of research.  An overview of some of these really cool and unusual sources will be discussed.  At the very least, you will walk out saying…wow, that WAS some cool stuff.
