    Vital Records – Beyond Births, Marriages and Deaths.

    Vital records of birth, marriage, and death allow us to document the dates and parent-child relationships of each generation in a family tree. As primary sources these records offer dates and places of the event, parent names, and places of origin. Information from these documents can help lead a researcher to other valuable records. This presentation will include visual examples and handouts concerning where to locate these genealogical gems, and how to utilize the information they contain. Delaware Public Archives, October 2nd, 10:30 a.m.
