Got ancestors in The Golden State? We've got two new webinars to help you find them! Announcing an additional two classes in our California Research series:
We're working hard to give our webinar subscribers the educational classes they need to maximize their genealogical research! Both of these new classes are bonus webinars in the webinar library. The webinar previews are always free.
Counting California: Censuses, Directories, and Voter Records
One of the first things we do as family history researchers is to track our ancestor in the federal census. This provides us with a time and place for our family. But there are other records that can also provide that information. Aside from the federal census, it’s important to be familiar with state specific censuses, directories (city as well as topical) and voter registrations. These resources provide names, relationships, addresses, occupations and other genealogically important data. We’ll look at what is available and where to find these items online and off.
Ho for California: Land and Maps
Birth, marriage, death, and a final resting place. These are all important events in documenting our ancestor’s life. California officially started recording BMD events in 1905 but what counties started the process earlier? What alternative sources exist for vital records when a government issued certificate is not available? Once you have documented the death of an ancestor, where do you find their final resting place? We will explore vital record recording in California and alternatives prior to official state recording. We will also explore other places to find information about your ancestor’s BMD event. Finally we will look at what types of cemeteries exist in California and where to find burial information.
These join two California webinars already in the library:
- Researching in California - Libraries, Archives and Online
- To Live and Die in California: Researching Vital Records
