Finding the Law – Tips for Genealogists

March 24, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Time and time again, we’re told as genealogists that we need to look at records in the context of the law at the time and in the place where the records were created. Easier said than done! With 50 states and the federal government all passing laws, how do we find the laws we need? Judy Russell, JD and Certified Genealogist, will provide resources and specific examples from NY to help genealogists find the laws and legal information relevant to their research.

This is a virtual talk presented on Zoom. Admission is $8, or free for members. To register as a non-member please visit Members do not need to register. A link for this program will be emailed to all Schenectady County Historical Society members the day of the virtual program.
