Welcome to SMCGS
Genealogical Gems found in ledgers
June 17 2023 10:30AM
Diane L. Richard, MEng, MBA
Small business ledgers are not often examined by genealogy researchers. We’ll talk about why ledgers can be invaluable to your research – there is an incredible amount of genealogically leverageable material to be found in ledgers. You can learn so much about your family, the neighborhood, other local business proprietors, and so much more, through these records.
See "Upcoming Public Events" for an extended description of this talk.
The event is free and all are welcome; however, it will be necessary to register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting.
