- 6:00 PM: Amber Oldenburg presenting: "Land for the Landless: Homestead Records and How to Use them in Your Research"
The Homestead Act of 1862 opened millions of acres of land for settlement across 30 states. Interested individuals needed to meet certain criteria before the land could gain title to this land. The records created from this process are often overlooked by many family historians. This session will help you understand the wealth of knowledge that can be found in these valuable records.
