Beyond the traditional records that yield essential names, dates, and places, you can often get a better understanding of your ancestors from some of the lesser-used records that don’t rise to the surface in a general search.

This presentation highlights some of the best and most unusual collections, how to find them, and the wonderful clues in them that will lead to other records.
