Probate Monday

Next in the series of webinars to be offered by the Board for Certification of Genealogists is Monday’s webinar — “‘Of Sound Mind and Body’: Using Probate Records in Your Research” — presented by Michael Hait CG.

MH.webinarCreated as part of the BCG Skillbuilding Track at the 2014 National Genealogical Society conference, Michael’s lecture discusses the process associated with the administration of testate and intestate estates and the records created as a result.

He explains that: “Consulting these records is ordinarily an essential part of the reasonably exhaustive research necessary to meet the Genealogical Proof Standard. Example documents illustrate the various and detailed information that probate records can hold about our ancestors, their daily lives, and family relationships.”

The webinar is open to all genealogists who want to improve their skills, and begins at 8 p.m. Eastern (7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain, 5 p.m. Pacific).

And, yes, it’s free.
