Living with Legal Lingo
January 5, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST
Join us as we start the new year with renewed lecturer and genealogist, Judy Russell, as she explains many of the legal terms, meanings, and implications of the legal language in our family records.
Here is the description of this presentation from her lecture offerings: The language of the law is part Greek, part French, part Latin, even part Saxon – and all confusing. Every family’s records are chock full of legal lingo that can appear utterly baffling to even an experienced genealogist. But whether it’s for a family as famous as Daniel Boone’s, or one as ordinary as yours or mine, understanding the legal lingo in the records is a critical part of understanding the records themselves.
Her biography can be found here.
