Middlesex Chapter – The Real Life of Vital Records

June 12 @ 10:30 am

After a brief business meeting, Diane Boumenot will present The Real Life of Vital Records.

Description: Understanding when, where, and why vital records were created, and the changes in those practices over the years, can help us find them today. Learn how to use copies, abstracts, indexes, and “substitutes” on the path to the best record. Improve your family history research today by maximizing your ability to locate the records that tie generations together.
