Genealogical Society To Meet September 20, 2018
The South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society will meet at the Historical Society Museum, 250 E. Market St., York, on Sunday, Oct. 7. A brief business meeting will begin at 2:15 p.m., and the program, "Solving Genealogical Problems With Land Plats," will immediately follow at approximately 2:30 p.m. Jerry Smith will be the presenter.
Land plats, drawing of land tracts from local land records, surveys from the Pennsylvania Land Office, or even drawings people make themselves from deeds or other documents can be helpful in unravelling genealogical mysteries. The program will show how land plats have solved real research problems, including locating unknown cemeteries, establishing family relationships, sorting out same-name individuals, and providing evidence when more traditionally used record sets are silent.
