BCG offers free webinar on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, 8:00 p.m. (EST)
The 18th amendment took effect in January 1920 and ushered in more than a decade of Prohibition until repealed by the 21st Amendment in December 1933. In those few years, so many records were created for juice joints and bootleggers, revenuers and Untouchables—producing a gold mine for researchers.
BCG’s next free monthly webinar in conjunction with Legacy Family Tree Webinars is “From the 18th to the 21st: The Records of Prohibition” by Judy G. Russell, JD, CG®, CGL℠. This webinar airs Tuesday, December 15, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. eastern standard time.
A genealogist with a law degree, Judy G. Russell is a lecturer, educator and writer who enjoys helping others understand a wide variety of genealogical issues, including the interplay between genealogy and the law. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science and journalism from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and a law degree from Rutgers School of Law-Newark, and holds Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer credentials from the Board for Certification of Genealogists where she serves as a member of the Board of Trustees. She has worked as a newspaper reporter, trade association writer, legal investigator, defense attorney, federal prosecutor, law editor and, until her retirement, was an adjunct member of the faculty at Rutgers Law School. Judy is a Colorado native with roots deep in the American south on her mother’s side and entirely in Germany on her father’s side. Visit her website at www.legalgenealogist.com.
