Changes are afoot here at the Staats Place. Over the next week or so, the site will be getting a facelift. Not only that, there will be some new sections as I integrate and create sections for my professional research services. So if you check in and there is a garish font or a skewed box – it’s a good bet I am designing on the fly and in the process of changing something. Would it be a better idea to develop offline and then upload the finished site? Probably, but designing live gives me that little extra incentive to make sure I actually finish it rather than procrastinating

- Beyond the Docket Books: Digging For Gold In Probate PacketsStarts: 7:00 pmEnds: 9:00 pmLocation: Chardon Library, 110 East Park Street, Chardon, OH, United StatesDescription: Will books and probate dockets can provide a great deal of information about our ancestors, but the original estate (probate) file can reveal details about our ancestors and their families that no other record group is likely to document. Family relationships, occupations, personal possessions, and even family squabbles may all be contained in that little packet. Administrator bonds, inventories, sale lists, distributive accounts, and other items found in the estate file breathe life into our ancestors and provide us with a glimpse of the person behind the names and dates.
