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.
California Newspapers and Digitized Books
In this webinar we look at the printed word. Newspapers provide us with the details of everyday life that are hard to find anywhere else. Digitized books span the realm of the local history and biography which helps to tell the story of places and people. Where can you find Californian newspapers and digitized books? Many times you can find what you need online through digitization projects, subscription and free websites but for those times you can’t find what you need, knowing what is available and where is important.
Going to the Courthouse
Not all California courthouse records are at the courthouse. And for most courthouses, the researcher must rely on paying for a search which may or may not result in the records they need. Knowing the structure of the California court system and how to access records is important in order to avoid frustration. We’ll look at what must be requested, what is available online through the courthouse website, what can be searched in person, what is available at various archives, FamilySearch and other websites.
