ISGS October 2013 Webinar – Up In Smoke!! What To Do When the Courthouse Burns
By popular demand, Peggy Clemens Lauritzen is back with us. Peggy will present Up In Smoke!! What To Do When the Courthouse Burns on October 8, and we will learn some techniques for searching areas where disaster may have struck our traditional genealogy records.

Description: War and natural disasters have taken their toll on many of our nation’s county courthouses. Let’s look at some helpful sources that may still exist.
