Diane Barbour “Using Early American Records”
Using Hard to Find Records Will Tell the Story of an Ohio Pioneer
This talk explores the life of Amasa Delano Sproat, an early Ohio settler. This case study identifies many of those hard to find early American records that tell his story. The participant will learn about records available before the 1850 every name census and how to obtain them. If you are doing early American research this class will help you.

In June 2012, she graduated from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto to complete her Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies or PLCGS. This certificate represents 45 completed classes in methodology, American records and English records. Diane continues her education by attending several conferences and Institutes every year.
