Webinar—Research in Federal Records: Some Assembly Required
November 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Federal records offer genealogical gold with both direct references to our ancestors and rich contextual background information. But it can be daunting to explore record groups that are not readily available online. The wide array of tools includes paper finding aids, preliminary inventories, online indexes, web guides, and published articles, as well as the National Archives Catalog. Malissa will offer a framework and several case studies that highlight the integration of multiple research tools.
Presenter: Malissa Ruffner, JD, CG— Malissa Ruffner, CG, holds degrees in law and library science.

She currently serves as vice-president of the Maryland Genealogy Society and the director of the Genealogical Institute on Federal Records, held every summer at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
