As the United States grew, territories were created to organize and manage new land acquisitions. Settlers could live in the same place and be part of several territories. This talk will help you determine which territories your ancestors lived in and introduce the records that the US Government has kept.
This lecture is presented by Vern Dale, a retired engineer and active amateur genealogist & Martha Wallace, a retired middle school teacher who volunteers at the National Archives in San Bruno and enjoys history and searching for her ancestors.
