The Research Like a Pro Genealogy Podcast

Dec 24, 2018

In our podcast episode today, Diana and I discuss three case studies about probate records. In our last episode, we talked all about how to find probate records and what are in them. This episode is about how to probate files to answer a research question. It's amazing how many clues are hiding in these records! We discuss three projects - Diana's research about Thomas B. Royston, Nicole's client project about John Johnson, and Diana's project about Georgia Dawson. Don't forget to download the special freebie we created for you all about Probate records here: U.S. Probate Records Cheat Sheet.
