"Homesteaders and Miners: Using Birth Information and Land Records to Trace Pioneer Migrations”
Anna Hopkins-Arnold of Rootfinders Genealogy Research will show how we can follow our ancestors between census years as they migrate and settle in new areas. She will show how to find documents listing veterans and homesteaders and miners using land warrants, patenting, surveying land, and documenting improvements to secure title. She’ll also show how you can use the birth information in census records to gain insight into family migrations and find hidden treasures in records you already have.
