New York State Family History Conference Speaker Profiles: Judy Russell

NYSFHC logo 2015“No Person Shall … Gallop Horses In the Streets” – Using Court Records to tell the Story of our Ancestors’ Lives
Early court records give color and meaning to the lives and times of our ancestors. County courts often functioned as both judiciary and legislature, and appeals courts published fact-filled opinions. While the records often establish relationships to help build a family tree, they offer so much richness and depth to help tell a family’s story.
Award-winning blogger Judy G. Russell (http://www.legalgenealogist.com) is a genealogist with a law degree who writes and lectures on topics ranging from court records to DNA. She is a Trustee of the Board for Certification of Genealogists, from which she holds credentials as a Certified Genealogist and Certified Genealogical Lecturer.

Judy will be giving three lectures and a dinner talk at the New York State Family History Conference. Learn more about the New York State Family History Conference here, or buy tickets in our online store.
