Looking for Your 18th Century Ancestors in Rural America

Written on: July 22nd, 2015 in Events at the ArchivesResearch Room

On Saturday, August 1 at 10:30 a.m., Kim Bucklaw of the Chester County Archives and Chester County Historical Society will present a program at the Delaware Public Archives about searching for one’s ancestors in 18th century rural America. This program will show how to use timelines along with a variety of records (taxes, deeds, court records etc.) to solve family mysteries. Effectively placing your ancestors in time and location using these alternative methods and sources can be an invaluable skill for family researchers. This workshop will have information for genealogists of all skill levels.

With more than 12 years of research experience, Kim Bucklaw currently serves as the Assistant Archivist and the primary genealogical researcher for the Chester County Archives and Chester County Historical Society in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Ms. Bucklaw has a master’s degree in American History from Temple University and holds certification from the Academy of Certified Archivists.

The workshop is free to the public and will last approximately one hour. No reservations are required. For more information, contact Sarah Denison (302) 744-5016 or e-mail sarah.denison@state.de.us.
