Bankruptcy to Equity: Using Federal Court Records Webinar

Webinar: Researching Ancestors in Federal Court Records

In genealogy, intermediate and advanced researchers understand that they should conduct a reasonably exhaustive search of available documents pertaining to our ancestors. Did you know that the US Federal Court Records may have information about your ancestor?

Micahel L Strauss will be presenting during the Back2Research Conference on 23 September 2017 about records that you may have never known existed. US Federal Court records include collections created by district courts, circuit courts, courts of appeal, and the Supreme Court. These courts produced case files for the following categories: civil, admiralty, equity, law, criminal, and bankruptcy cases.  Michael will focus on the equity and bankruptcy record sets – how to access them and what gems you are overlooking.

Genealogy eConference for Hurricane Harvey Flood Relief
Members of The Humble Area Genealogical Society had the flood waters from Hurricane Harvey damage or destroy their homes. Our conference was originally going to use proceeds from this conference to help our chapter’s preservation efforts. However, our board feels the funds donated will best serve our community best by helping the impacted society members recover.

As such, this eConference will give 50% of each registration to the relief of these members. Register today and provide aid.
