The Legal Genealogist has done a credible job, these past few weeks, of looking backward.
But … sigh… I’ve been a bit remiss in the other direction.
So it’s time, and past time, now, to look forward.
To invite you along, to the extent possible, on the trip through the year 2022.
And we’ll start right here in January and even take a peek at February.
Here’s what I’ll be doing:
• Thursday, 6 January, 7 p.m. PST: The California State Society DAR is hosting the virtual presentation Landing the Ancestors: Federal and State Land Records. Members only.
• Saturday, 8 January, 1 p.m. PST: The Eastern Washington Genealogical Society is hosting the virtual presentation NARA Mythbusters: Your Family IS in the National Archives. See this link for event info, and this explanation of meeting information.
• Monday-Friday, 10-14 January: The Legal Genealogist will be a student! Okay, so yes, I’ll be teaching in a couple of courses at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, but most of the week I’ll be diligently trying to expand my horizons in Warren Bittner’s course, Gothic Script and Fraktur: Reading Records of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, and the Czech Republic, plus German-American Church Books and Newspapers.
• Saturday, 29 January, 10 a.m.-4:15 p.m. EST: The Manatee (Florida) Genealogical Society is hosting its all-day virtual seminar, Finding Your Elusive Ancestors. Speakers include D.
