Title: Location, Location, Location: Land Records Matter

Summary: This presentation provides context for the value of land records in genealogical research, as well as the historical background of land acquisition and distribution in the United States. Woven throughout the presentation are examples of land records and repositories helpful to research in the U.S.

Title: Did I Marry an Axe Murderer?! The Story of Juan Corona
