Explore legal genealogy in this Family Tree University presentation
Did you know that criminal court records could mention your ancestors even if they didn't commit a crime? Whether your family is full of felons, witnesses or you just want to see some cool historical mug shots, join us for Family Tree University's upcoming webinar: Using Criminal Court Records on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Presenter Judy G. Russell, the Legal Genealogist, will break down these fascinating historical documents with famous examples, such as:
- The original police report citing Rosa Parks for being a "colored female sitting in the white section of the bus”
- The indictment of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker (a.k.a. Bonnie & Clyde) from a US District Court
- A document convicting suffragette Susan B. Anthony of “casting an illegal vote”
Can't make the live presentation? No worries! Every registrant receives a copy of the recording to watch as many times as you wish, along with a PDF of the slides and handouts for reference.
