ASHLAND – The Ashland Public Library will host Hidden Treasures in Town Records on Tuesday, September 27 virtually at 7 p.m.
This is a presentation and discussion on how town records can help you find ancestors and learn fascinating details about their lives!
Genealogists with New England ancestors have a great advantage in being able to use Town Records as a resource.
From earliest times, New England towns began keeping records of their many activities. This virtual lecture will highlight the benefits of using town records in genealogy, provide examples of gems in the records, suggest ways to locate the records, and present keys to using these records successfully.
Dr. McCoy looks forward to an interactive session with questions, comments and additions to her ideas.
Dr. McCoy, President of Find-Your-Roots in Brunswick, Maine has been tracing her family history for over 30 years. Prior to starting her own genealogy business in 2001 and her training consulting business in 1999, she worked as a training director for UNUM in Portland, Maine.
