But between legal terminology, busy clerks and inconsistent records from county to county, a courthouse can be an intimidating place to research. Gain the tools and confidence to overcome these obstacles in this independent study course.

Courthouse Research Crash Course: On-Demand Webinar
DOWNLOAD

The county courthouse can be a scary place for the inexperienced genealogist. Aside from the stressful hustle and bustle, courthouses host a maze of departments, courts and offices that don't necessarily perform the same functions as in the past, and may or may not house the records a family historian needs. This, in addition to complicated legal jargon, can make finding the records of your ancestors an anxiety-filled exercise. In this hour-long presentation, Sunny Morton will help you devise a winning strategy to conquer the courthouse.
