Colonial Genealogical Records - And How to Find Them
presented by
Hal Horrocks

† † As family historians, as we get further back into our ancestorís lives, it becomes more difficult for us to find the records we need to fill out our family trees. The records for the Colonial period of our history are there, we just have to figure out how to find them. This presentation will explore ways to find the records from 1610 to 1776 that will help us in our search.
† † A native Californian and longtime Orange County California resident, Hal Horrocks is a professional genealogist, teacher and lecturer.
