Genealogy Series: Researching Your Institutionalized Ancestors

Join Zoom Meeting

Meeting ID: 857 5387 8472
Passcode: 537120

Researching institutionalized ancestors can be a real task and can require close research at the local level to unearth clues. Whether your ancestor was at the state hospital, a children’s home, a prison, or another institution, the path you take to research them can be well off the typical databases. What can you expect to find, if anything, and where should you begin to look? Join us for a case study as we track one ancestor from the institution to the archives.
