Several free webinars offered this week

Several free webinars will take place this week covering topics of Quebec research, record loss, home sources and Scots-Irish Research.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Overcoming Brick Walls Caused by Record Loss” on Wednesday, March 7 at 2 p.m. Many records have been lost due to climate, poor storage, and war. Often it is possible to find alternative records if you know where to look. Federal records such as the census, and cemetery records both local and national are just two of the many record types to check to find ancestors who lived in areas where records were destroyed or lost.
