The Clayton Library Friends General Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 8, 2021.
This general meeting will be held via Zoom online meeting. A brief business meeting will be followed by our speaker, Michael John Neill presenting the topic: "Hogsheads and Hog's Heads: Heading Towards and Using Local Court Records"
This intermediate-level presentation assumes the attendee has a basic understanding of court terminology and manual search approaches. Presentation will discuss, through use of several examples, analysis and interpretation of loose court papers including depositions, subpoenas, orders, etc. Use of court records to expand the knowledge of the family-kin network, writing up a summary of the court action, and using the information in a court case to develop additional problem-solving strategies will be discussed.
