As family historians go through the library to their local genealogy department, many quickly bypass the library’s Government Document Section. All offices of our federal government compiled, printed, and disseminated an assortment of reports and maps. Over the years, the Government Printing Office sent these publications out to various regional and selective depository libraries. Many times these publications contain unusual and one of a kind information pertaining to people and their surroundings.
This session demonstrates the types of information included in government documents, and how to search, locate, and obtain these federal gems.
The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) in conjunction with Legacy Family Tree will present “Using Another Library Source: The Government Document Section” by Patricia Walls Stamm, CG, CGL, live and free to the public at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, 18 June 2019. In order to accommodate those who might have schedule conflicts, the webinar can be accessed at no charge for a week after the broadcast.
Patricia Walls Stamm, CG, CGL, is a St. Louis, Missouri, researcher. She is a genealogical instructor for St. Louis Community College and the Institute of Genealogy & Historical Research, and lectures on the local, state, and national levels. She served as Education Manager for the National Genealogical Society until 2018.
