Most genealogy researchers understand there are “burned counties” in the state of Virginia, which means there are missing and lost records and you will have some challenges along your research path. This session is designed to help change your thinking about burned counties by seeking alternative records to help provide information. Tips and strategies will be shared to help combat some of those challenges of missing and lost records.
