Too many times after you’ve completed your usual online searches and visits
to local libraries, you find yourself left with a proverbial “Brick Wall” problem. So what
can you do? Push beyond the routine and dig for obscure and hidden
records that you missed. In April, Cari will be our guide to locating those hard-to-find
records. She will reveal exactly what these obscure but valuable records are, and more
importantly, how to find them. So after the April presentation when your usual searches
don’t turn up what you need, pull Cari’s methods out of your genealogical tool kit and
discover those hidden records that will help you get the answers you need.
