The Doña Ana County Genealogical Society

September 13, 2023 Society Meeting

How to use FamilySearch to Locate Deeds and Wills in Unindexed Images 

DACGS member Jeannie Kowalik will share how she found deeds and wills on FamilySearch in a group of images which have not yet been indexed. She has used this method to find probate records in Pennsylvania. It is a useful way to find out about property, relationships, and more about the life of one's ancestors. Other state/county images also appear on FamilySearch. Not all of the billions of records which FamilySearch has purchased are indexed. Indexing depends on whether the owner of the records allowed the filming and indexing of the records. Some are much easier to search than the recording system used by some Pennsylvania counties.

We look forward to seeing you in person at the Branigan Memorial Library or via our Zoom broadcast on Wednesday, September 13th beginning at 2:00 pm MDT.

Society members will receive a reminder of the meeting via email and non-members are welcome to participate in person or by Zoom session.

For non-member Zoom access, please send an email request with your name, telephone number, and email address to at least two days before the meeting date.

A Dutch Treat lunch will take place at La Nueva Casita Cafe, 195 N Mesquite Street at 11:45 am on Wednesday, 13 September, prior to the Society meeting held at the Roadrunner Room of the Branigan Memorial Library.
