YOU’LL LOVE THIS IF:

  • You’re not familiar with criminal court records and the valuable information on your ancestors they could hold
  • You’ve hit a brick wall and want to learn how legal genealogy could help you bust it down

The bountiful paper trail of a criminal court case can be a key resource in your genealogy research, whether your ancestor was a witness or felon, police officer or judge. Bail bonds—which guaranteed the appearance of an individual in court—could even provide the only proof that your ancestor was living in a specific area. The Legal Genealogist blogger Judy Russell will lay out essential strategies for Using Criminal Court Records. This webinar comes with a free PDF download: a copy of Family Tree Magazine’s guide to courthouse records.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • Explanation of the complaint and indictment process as it affected your ancestors
  • The paper trail generated from arrests and gathering witnesses
  • How to find records of pretrial and trial proceedings and what they can tell you about your ancestors
  • How sentences—from the stocks to the penitentiary—were issued and documented
