2023-2024 Programs and Events:

“FINDING YOUR FAMILY STORY : YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR DEEDS WITH LINDA JONAS”

Linda Jonas will present “Finding Your Family Story: You Shall Know Them by Their Deeds,” at the next Denton County Genealogical Society meeting, Thursday, 14 March 2024. Meeting social time begins at 6:30 p.m., with the program at 7 p.m., in the meeting room of the Emily Fowler Central Library, 502 Oakland Street, Denton.

Deeds are more than just land records! In the American Colonies, deeds were any legal contract. So you can find marriages, wills, and much more in deed books. In addition, your ancestor may not be mentioned in his parent’s will because his inheritance has already been recorded in the deed books. Come see one of the most powerful tools for finding more about your family history and learn how to smash those brick walls!
