Where?: Understanding Boundaries and Jurisdictions

Thursday, November 18, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET

Presented by Hallie Borstel, Genealogist

Understanding where your ancestor is living at a given time can be a loaded question—and to answer it completely, you need to know the broader geo-political and historical context. And as records are most often arranged by place, the “where” becomes especially important for family historians. In this webinar, Genealogist Hallie Borstel will demonstrate how to research boundary changes and understand jurisdictional levels using maps, primary and secondary sources, and other records.
