I just finished watching Christine Rose's video on Courthouse Research over at Family Search and I have to tell you, I am really impressed. The presentation as a whole is outstanding.
This video is way more than a power point presentation. Christine takes you, the viewer, on a virtual trip to a courthouse where you get to visit the offices of the county clerk, probate, criminal court, civil court, assessor and recorder of deeds.
The presentation is entirely INTERACTIVE letting you make choices like what you should say to the person behind the desk, which index to look at and which office holds the record you are looking for.
The entire lesson is about 20 minutes and well worth every second!
For the very few who don't know, Christine Rose is a Certified Genealogist, Certified Genealogical Lecturer, and Fellow, American Society of Genealogists. In December 2010, the Dallas Genealogical Society awarded her the 2010 Lloyd deWitt Bockstruck Distinguished Service Award which recognizes an individual who has consistently and selflessly contributed to the field of genealogy.. She is also the author of oodles of genealogical books and is one of the most friendly genealogists I have ever met!
