Warner Meeting Room
Why Genealogists Need The Law
Presented by Kathy Gunter Sullivan, Certified Genealogist
(Certified Genealogist is a service mark of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.)
The law is complex, and its language is foreign. Nevertheless, researchers and historians must understand the legal system in effect during the time period being studied. This presentation focuses on how the law can answer troublesome research questions. It gives specific examples touching on probate, land, and other important legal situations encountered by the people and is accompanied by a syllabus and supplementary handouts. A question and answer period follows the presentation.
The program is sponsored by the Tar River Connections Genealogical Society and Braswell Memorial Library. The speaker would like a head count, so if you are interested in coming, please contact Local History/Genealogy Librarian Traci Thompson at 252-442-1951 ext. 247 or tthompson@...
