FPL welcomes Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist, our 2022 genealogy keynote speaker. Using her legal background, she will lead four virtual workshops for genealogists and historians.

Catastrophic records loss, due to fires and disasters at courthouses, is a fact of life for those researching their genealogy.  When a disaster takes out birth, marriage, death, court, land, will and probate records all in one fell swoop, it may still be possible to light our family's research fires - to rekindle our interest in our ancestral roots - using DNA Evidence.

Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist, is our 2022 genealogy keynote speaker. She will use her legal background to lead four virtual workshops for genealogists, historians or anyone new to the hobby.  Virtual sessions will be held throughout the day.  Registration is required for each session.

1:00       "Deemed a Runaway: Black Laws of the North"
2:30       "Where There is -or Isn't- a Will"
