Jamison To Present “Digging Up Dirt On Your Ancestors” To Genealogists
LIBERTY, July 9, 2013 - Do you have a family mystery on your hands or do you just want to learn more about your ancestors? Then property records are what you need! County recorders, clerks of court, town clerks and other similarly titled officials, depending on the state, have been recording local land transfers in deed books from the county formation up to today. These records are among the earliest and most complete court records you’ll find. Land and property records apply to more people than any other written record and your ancestors are likely among these people! Deeds contain a vast amount of genealogical data just waiting to be discovered and maybe a few things you didn’t want to know!
Linda Jamison will be the speaker for the monthly meeting of the Liberty County Genealogical Society at the DAR meeting room behind the Cleveland-Partlow House on Grand Avenue on Tuesday, July 16th, 10:00 a.m. Mrs. Jamison’s program will be “DIGGING UP DIRT ON YOUR ANCESTORS – SOLVING GENEALOGICAL PROBLEMS USING PROPERTY RECORDS.” A seasoned researcher and popular speaker for genealogical societies, historical societies, lineage societies and civic groups, Mrs. Jamison is currently the County Chairman for the Liberty County Historical Commission; Past President of the Liberty County Genealogical Society; Past Regent for the Libertad Chapter NSDAR and current State Chairman for DAR Good Citizens; Correspondent Docent for the DAR Museum in Washington, D.C.; Past President of the Franklin Hardin Chapter DRT; a member of Colonial Dames, the Huguenot Society and many other lineage based societies. Mrs. Jamison, a 7th generation Texas, was recently a featured workshop speaker sponsored by the LDS Church and Baytown Historical and Genealogical Society.
The Liberty County Genealogical Society meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and guests are welcome. Programs are presented each month to members and guests on various aspects of genealogical research. For more information contact LCGS President, Brent Reeves at firstname.lastname@example.org .
