Civil Law Records in Genealogical Research: Notarial Records - free webinar by Claire Bettag, CG now online for limited time

The recording of tonight's BCG webinar, "Civil Law Records in Genealogical Research: Notarial Records” by Claire Bettag, CG, is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.
Webinar Description
Civil law notarial records are among the most valuable genealogical resources available. In civil law societies like France, Spain, Italy, (French) Canada, and many other countries, notaries function much like contract lawyers, creating legally binding "authentic acts" (also called contracts or protocols) that regulate private relationships among individuals. These are among the oldest extant types of records, dating in France, for one example, to the 16th century or earlier, and pre-dating church records in some places. They are also packed with information - explicitly stated family data as well as information that can help define an ancestor's family life, social standing, financial status, business and social relationships within a community. This presentation examines the value, content, and location of the most commonly used notarial records, and strategies for using them to further genealogical research.
