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.
