Our Black Sheep and Their Prison Records

with Eleanor Brinsko


Family trees often have ancestors that are not “acceptable” topics of conversation. But why is that the case? A common reason is they were in trouble with the law. In this presentation, we will explore three different case studies on how to learn about the ancestors our family members will not talk about by using prison and legal records, archives, online databases, and newspapers.

Eleanor Brinsko (www.carlongenealogy.com) is a professional genealogist who specializes in Scandinavian-American genealogy by looking at genealogical and social trends on both sides of the Atlantic.
