    Uncovering the Lives of the Enslaved in Court Records

    by Robyn N. Smith

    Court records can be intimidating with their legal language. It can be difficult to understand what the records mean. In this lecture, Ms Smith provides a brief description of the various kinds of courts and  the records they create. For those researching slaves and slaveholders, court records can be rich terrain since families often fought over their "property." Attendees will learn through examples and case studies what kinds of information can be discovered about their ancestors and their communities in county-level court records.

    All registrants will be able to rewatch the webinar for a month (30 days) afterwards. 

    Robyn Smith has been researching her family and others for over 25 years. An engineer by day, Robyn applies those research and problem-solving skills to the field of genealogy. She specializes in Maryland, African American, Slavery and Court Records research. From 2008-2012, Robyn taught an "Advanced African American Genealogy" class at Howard Community College in Columbia, MD. Robyn has lectured widely at regional and national conferences, and has taught at the Maryland Genealogical Society, the Maryland State Archives and the Reginald Lewis Museum.

    Lineage Societies of 1812

    By Carla Maitland

    The War of 1812 was sometimes called “the forgotten war’ because it was often minimized in school history courses. There was a great war going on at the time between Great Britain and France, so the war was frequently lost in world history. Find out how important this war was to the still fairly-young country called the United States of America, and discover how we celebrate it today through our lineage and historical societies. Emphasis will be place on the qualifications, etc. of joining the General Society of the War of 1812 and its female counterpart, the United States Daughters of 1812.

    On Solid Ground: Finding Your Ancestors in Tennessee Land Records by Chuck Sherrill


    From about 1780 to 1840 Tennessee was at the crossroads of the nation. Millions of Americans streamed from the eastern coast states into Tennessee and beyond. Land records contain names and information about many of these settlers, but they can be difficult to locate and understand. In this lecture we will use maps to help understand why people settled where and when they did. Using original documents as examples we will discuss the records created and mine the information they can provide. Guidance for finding records online and at the State Archives will be provided.

    Charles A. Sherrill (M.A., M.L.S.) is State Librarian and Archivist of Tennessee. His education includes master’s degrees in History and Library Science from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He has been active in genealogical research and publishing since he was a teenager. Among his works are books on several Tennessee counties, particularly Grundy County where most of his ancestors lived. He is the author of the National Genealogical Society’s Guide to Research in Tennessee, two family genealogies, the two-volume Tennessee Convicts, and The Reconstructed 1810 Tennessee Census. He is a national conference speaker and has edited the Middle Tenn. Journal of Genealogy and History for the past fifteen years.
