Using Federal Records without Visiting the Castle - Webinar, J. Mark Lowe - FREE

Title: Using Federal Records without Visiting the Castle
Date: Monday, August 8, 2011
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Sponsor: Friends of the National Archives-Southeast Region, Inc.

A castle is a fortress with great walls, extensive passages and interesting items stored in every passage. Many castles are surrounded by motes with a secured drawbridge entrance. Many genealogists consider the records held by the National Archives as inaccessible. They are planning for a "someday" trip to Washington, D.C. Until then, the dream of finding the illusive genealogical answer will remain within those Federal records.

Today, researchers enjoy access to more Federal records than ever before. The online finding aids and additional resources make these records available throughout the heartland. The National Archives has made extensive efforts to put the Federal records at the disposal of every researcher in the United States. The castle remains at the center of the Federal records, but the door and network access is open to more than ever before.
