New webinar recording released:

The Missing 1840 Census Enumeration  (NEW!)This webinar discusses a couple "missing" from the 1840 Census in Ohio and how they were eventually found and the indirect evidence used. A good overview of using land records to solve a "non-land record" problem with some points along the way about organization and visualization. Media file and PDF handout included. Suggestions for additional research are also discussed. Add to cart. $8.50.

Several attendees said this session also provided a good overview of the actual use of land records--which were also used to prove a parentage in this example as well.
