J. Mark Lowe spent Saturday, 27 October with us at the annual Fall Speaker Series, talking about "Looking for Family in Court Records." In his four talks, Mark covered the basics of using court records, what you are likely to find in them, the various kinds of records that might be available, and how you can mine those records for clues about your ancestors' lives. He took us through an actual court case and answered many questions on those interesting but under-utilized treasures.
Mark's four lectures were professionally recorded, and the CDs are now on sale. The cost is $65, which includes a copy of the syllabus and shipping. You can purchase the CDs from our website <www.stlgs.org> by clicking on the button on the home page.
