  • History Center hosts personal genealogy workshop

    As a general rule, vital records weren’t kept in the United States until the early 1900s. This makes it more challenging for anyone researching a relative prior to that time. But the information vital records contain makes the search worthwhile: full name of individual being researched, date of a certain event (birth/death), county, state or town where event took place. This is all valuable knowledge to someone searching for a needle in a haystack.
