Barbara J. Brown Family History Seminar Focus on the Old Northwest

Research in the Old Northwest Territory with Dr. David McDonald, CG

Jefferson’s proposals for the area ceded by Great Britain after the Revolutionary War provided a blueprint for the development of the system of measurement for the lands of the public domain, and for the civil government of what became all or part of six states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. This fast-paced lecture covers a lot of land (literally) and a lot of records worth considering when undertaking a genealogy project.

Research in the Old Northwest Territory with Dr. David McDonald, CG will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Each summer, the Archives of Michigan and the Michigan Genealogical Council host a seminar to promote family history awareness and teach genealogy research skills. The event is generously supported by the Abrams Foundation in loving memory of Barbara J. Brown.

For this year’s event, we are pleased to offer this flagship annual gathering as a hybrid event. Participants can attend sessions either online or onsite. We are delighted to be hosting Dr. David McDonald, CG, for this year’s event, whose sessions will all be via Zoom.
