Warren County Chapter – “That’s in the Archives: Digging Into Archived Records” presented by Melissa Barker

March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Genealogists use archives every day to locate records about their ancestors. Are there records that you are not accessing because you don’t know they exist? Not all records are online, indexed, or microfilmed. Digging deeper into the local and state archives to find unique and relatively unknown records might be the next step in your genealogy research.

Melissa Barker is a Certified Archives Manager and Public Historian currently working at the Houston County, Tennessee, Archives & Museum. She is affectionately know as “The Archive Lady” to the genealogy community. Melissa lectures, teaches, and writes about the genealogy research process, researching in archives and records preservation. She conducts virtual presentations across the United States and other countries for various genealogy groups and societies. Melissa writes a popular blog entitled “A Genealogist in the Archives” and is a well-known published book reviewer. She has been a Professional Genealogist for the past 20 years with expertise in Tennessee records and has been researching her own family history for the past 34 years.
