Researching Your Ancestors Using Church Records by Jeff Herbert
Herbert has more than 20 years of experience in genealogical research and writing with a focus on local history. He has authored more than 15 publications identifying and indexing local sources to aid researchers. He is an expert in German research and old script handwriting.
Church records memorializing baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials often include information which can be extremely useful in identifying and sorting out family relationships. However, they are often overlooked or considered too difficult to obtain, particularly by beginning or intermediate level researchers. This presentation identifies valuable entry points for these vital sources of information.
The meeting will be held in the Phillippi Meeting Room of the Campus Center at the Otterbein-Lebanon Retirement Community, 585 State Route 741, (north of State Route 63), Lebanon, Ohio.
The event is open to the public, and is free. No reservations are necessary, and everyone is welcome!
