Mike Watson will help families find black sheep

The Adair County Genealogical Society's August program, 7 August 2017, will target the "Black Sheep" in public and private records.

Most families have a black sheep or two, at least in their estimation. Mike Watson will present a few research techniques for the often slighted, generally neglected kinfolk. Suggestions for how to search newspapers, public records, divorce petitions, criminal records, penitentiary records, as well as military desertions, church expulsions, and slavery-era documents will all be touched upon.

ACGS Regular Meeting, Monday, 7 August 2017, 5:00 p.m. Central Time, Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY 42728. For more information: 270-384-2472.
