Abstract versus Original, Do I need both?

You have found the abstracts of the deeds, court minutes or the probate records for your ancestor’s county at your local library. Is this good enough? This lecture will discuss why getting as close to the original record as possible is important. You will be given numerous examples of why you should use the original records and help the beginner/intermediate researcher understand the importance of using original documents.
