Florida State Genealogical Society December Poolside Chat Webinar

December 18, 20124 – 8:00 p, – 9:00 pm
Presented by Judy G. Russell, JD, CGSM, CGLSM

Overview: If there is one home truth in genealogy research, it’s this: not everything is available online. Sooner or later, every genealogist has got to make that first trip to the courthouse to check out the original records available there. How to prepare for that trip, the rules of the road, what to expect, what to ask for, and how to be sure you’ll be welcomed back the next time are explored in this lecture.
