Liv,
I should be a lot smarter on this topic after Saturday when Paula
Stuart-Warren, CG, delivers her lecture on "Tho' They Were Poor, They May
Have Been Rich in Records." She is giving this lecture at the North Hills
Genealogists annual conference this Saturday, Oct. 24.
www.NorthHillsGenealogists.org. 

You can also see if Paula has been audio-taped on the topic or if others
have spoken on it.
