GRIP July 2015 Update: Pennsylvania: Research in the Keystone State

Do you have ancestors that were lost in Penn’s Woods? Is all you know is that they came from Pennsylvania? This brand new July 19-24 GRIP course is sure to help shine a light on those ancestors who came from, or through, the Keystone State. Sharon Cook MacInnes, Ph.D. and Michael Lacopo, D.V.M. are a “pair o’ docs” who are well-versed in the ins and outs of Pennsylvania courthouse research, land, estate, tax, military, ethnic, and religious records.

Your course instructors give more information including a detailed topic-by-topic schedule on the course description page. It states in part: “We will present comprehensive overviews of the records in which your ancestor may appear, delve into how and where those records can be accessed, and demonstrate how the records should be used to expand an understanding of your ancestor’s life. We will provide you with interesting case studies and practical methods illustrating how ancestors reveal themselves within their social, economic and historical context.  During the week you will be challenged to solve hands-on problems in small groups.”

To join in this type of hands-on, in-the-trenches learning experience, register for this course beginning Wednesday, February 18, at noon eastern. It is bound to be a very popular course and may sell out within minutes. If so, a waiting list will be implemented.

See you this summer!
