    “The Worst Court House Ever:  Finding Treasure in the National Archives”

    Professor Robert Scott Davis

    Tennessee Valley Genealogical Society

    Many are familiar with the use of published Federal records in
    genealogical research.  However, much information remains unknown (and
    unused), even in original Federal records.  We all know, or are at least
    acquainted with, the use of Federal census records, passenger lists,
    military records, land grants, and Indian records for research.  These
    records and many others are covered in various guides.  Nonetheless, the
    Federal records and the National Archives, which house these documents,
    are underutilized as sources for genealogical research.  Bob will open
    these doors.

    For more information, phone 256-278-5533 or visit us at www.tvgs.org.

    Professor Robert Scott Davis, director of the Genealogy Program of Wallace
    State Community College (Hanceville, AL), will speak on the possibilities
    for research in the National Archives, including guides to research,
    facilities, and types of Federal records.  Many genealogists, amateur and
    not-so-amateur alike, have found this trove a challenge for genealogical
    mining, but Bob will sort through various techniques for us and show that
    with a little effort and know-how, the rewards are many and great
