TOPICS: 

1) Solving Difficult Problems With Kentucky and Virginia Tax Lists

Many beginning and even experienced researchers find research in Kentucky and Virginia difficult prior to 1850. Non-existent birth records, multiple men of the same name, and movement of people between census years present significant challenges. Problems involving families so poor that they never owned land or settled an estate, as well as financially successful families, can be studied with tax lists. Tax lists are among the few records that trace our ancestors yearly. Virginia and Kentucky tax lists are some of the most complete in the nation. Learn to better use original tax lists to solve your difficult research problems.

2) Developing a Successful and Efficient Research Plan

Many family genealogists and professionals believe that their goals are straightforward: to solve whatever problem their ancestors or their clients present. Identifying how to attack research problems and organize the research process is always an issue. Even though time limitations are less rigid for the family genealogist than the professional, they still exist. Learn research planning techniques that will save time, save money, and ensure success, whether you are a family genealogist of a professional.
