National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair
For the first time the National Archives presented their annual genealogy fair as an online event on September 3 and 4. The outstanding presentations and slides are available for viewing and download at http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/know-your-records/genealogy-fair/.Thirteen sessions focus on the vast array of holdings at the National Archives. Military records, alien registration files, Native American records, penitentiary records, and Chinese Exclusion case files are among the excellent topics covered. I want to thank colleague John Allen for directing me to this wonderful online resource.
