Genealogy Research Disaster Plan


Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions


We are offering monthly round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics. These sessions meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available power strips  so you can plug in your laptops. Please contact Jim Maloney at maloneyj6@gmail.com if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
An "executor" is named by the testator and is required by the court to post a bond. An "administrator" is appointed to handle the affairs of one who dies intestate (without a will).

STATE LAND STATES are states that owned and distributed their lands. This includes the original 13 colonies, Kentucky, Maine, Tennessee, Vermont and West Virginia, Hawaii and Texas. They use "metes and bounds" to survey the land.

Many legal instruments other than deeds appear in deed books. They include Bills of Sale, Prenuptial Agreements, Powers of Attorney, Contracts, Affidavits, Wills and Inventories and Voter and Jury Lists.
