Learn where to find the origin of your Ancestor using records available to you right here in this country. "Start with what you know and work back." Often it is necessary to know what town, city, county or village your ancestors are from. There are many records on this side of the puddle that may reveal that information. This is a discussion of what those records would be and where to find them. After hearing this talk the participant will have a better idea of the plethora of information on this side of the pond before expanding their research to another country.

How’d You Find That?!? Tips for Locating Obscure or Hidden Records (Program) by Cari Taplin
Obscure and hidden records are "out there" that can solve tough problems. How
do you find them? Hear tips and methods for finding these records. In this lecture
we will take a survey of possible obscure record examples and talk about
miscellaneous loose papers and manuscript collections as well as published
sources. Local Historical and Genealogical Society Archives can be treasure troves for finding these hidden gems. Another great source for "hidden" records are university and college archives. We will look at ways to find and access those collections. Time will be spent locating items in digital books including Google Books, Internet Archive, Hathi Trust, and others, to discover ancestors in digitized collections and reveal previously unknown details.
