  • Time:  7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description:  Are you still not finding that particular church record that will hopefully provide a date, a name, and a place for your ancestor? It might be a matter of not simply finding a church and its records; but the need to go beyond. Most of the church denominations have archives where records have been placed. This presentation should take the mystery out of this under-used source. Explanation into the location of select church denomination archives will be given and what you need to know about them.
