Researching Land and Deed Book Records

Speaker: Carol Cooke Darrow, CG

Acquiring land was one of the prime reasons for people to come to the American continent and to migrate from the New England and Virginia shores to the shores of the Pacific. Learning about land and the deed books that record the land transactions are the key to understanding your ancestors’ movements, wealth, and relationships.

Carol Cooke Darrow has been a Certified Genealogist® since 2005. She is the co-author of The Genealogist’s Guide to Researching Tax Records (with Susan Winchester). She currently volunteers at the Denver Public Library on Tuesdays and at the National Archives branch in Broomfield on Thursdays.

Information Session at 6:30 PM

What’s New in Genealogy Software?

Presented by Beth Benko

The "big three" genealogy software programs, Family Tree Maker, Legacy Family Tree, and Roots Magic have all announced new versions this year. Hear about the new features and see live demos (where possible) of each of these programs.  Note: It is not possible to demo software that is not yet generally available. Family Tree Maker 2017 and the update to Roots Magic are in beta test and cannot be demoed as of early May. It is hoped that they will be released before the June meeting.

Guests are welcome
