PROGRAM DETAILS:

9:00 am-WELCOME-CARLA MAITLAND & DOOR PRIZE

9:15 am-SESSION 1-SEPARATE BUT UNEQUAL: SLAVE LAWS & THEIR RECORDS-Whether north or south of the Mason-Dixon line, laws governed enslaved Americans, free people of color and slave-owners alike, creating a treasure trove of records for today's genealogists.

10:30-10:45 BREAK & DOOR-PRIZE

10:45 am-SESSION 2-THE FAIR COURT-RECORDS OF CHANCERY COURTS-Only one court has ever had doing what's fair as part of its official mission: the chancery court. With different names in different states(and countries), it was often the go-to court for cases of great genealogical value, including divorces, guardianships, real property partition and more.

12:15 LUNCH BREAK & DOOR-PRIZE

1:00 SESSION 3-ADVERTISING THE LAW: THE GEMS  IN THE LEGAL NOTICES-So many statutes required notice that someone wanted something done, and the legal notices in newspapers can be priceless sources of genealogical clues. [New: debuts RootsTech February 2020]

2:15-2:30 BREAK & DOOR-PRIZE

2:30 SESSION 4-MAKING A FEDERAL CASE OUT OF IT-Even genealogists who have a good background in court records often overlook the wealth of detail available in the records of the federal courts: the District Court and the Circuit Court (now the Circuit Court of Appeals).  From bankruptcies to copyrights to patent to cases in admiralty jurisdiction and more, federal court records merit a close look.

4:00 FINAL COMMENTS AND GRAND DOOR-PRIZE

REFUND POLICY:

Full refund if request is received on or before 10 am Oct 23, 2020
