NUCMC & its Cousins: Keys to Lost Ancestral Records
One of the important aids since 1962 is the National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections and its modern, searchable cousins. Some researchers assume that finding valuable manuscript collections is not possible. Through visuals the lecture relates the wide variety of materials to be found and the steps to find them.

Tho’ They Were Poor, They May Have Been Rich in Records
Visuals will demonstrate the extensive information which may be found. The examples span many states and time periods and both private organizations and government agencies at many levels. The family details included will astound you.

How many rooms are your papers in? How tall are the stacks of your research papers? This session will help you deal with these questions, and also present easy tips to help keep you organized day-to-day.
