Genealogy 101 - Vertical Files
By Melissa Barker
PLEASE NOTICE THIS BEGINS AT 6:00 PM
Vertical Files, sometimes called Subject Files, are a collection of miscellaneous documents and ephemera that are put in file folders which are then stored in filing cabinets and catalogued by surname or by subject name. These files are a hodge-podge of records and could contain just about anything that can fit into a file folder. This presentation will show the genealogist how to find these records and how to use them.
