Clayton Library Presents: It Takes a Village: Community Research
Friday, August 26
2:00 PM Central

Our ancestors didn’t (for the most part) live as hermits in a cave - they were part of a community of some sort. It might have been a vibrant urban setting, a suburban area, a small town, a farm community, or a frontier area. Finding records for all of them is
