Probate Records: The Alphabet Soup of Probate

February 21 @ 1:00 pm

Probate is one of the most important record sources available to genealogists to prove family relationships.  Researchers need to explore all parts of the probate process, not just the will.  Join us for this presentation by family history specialist Glenda Gardner Lloyd to learn how to use probate records most effectively in your genealogy research.

Glenda Gardner Lloyd is a fourth generation Californian. She grew up on a cattle ranch in northeastern California and attended a one-room country school. She received her BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her MA from California State University, Sacramento. She taught elementary school and worked as a reading specialist for thirty-eight years.

Glenda helped organize and served as the first president of Root Cellar, Sacramento Genealogical Society. She has taught genealogy classes through San Juan Adult Education for many years. She participates in local seminars for the California State Archives, the Regional Family History Center, the Sacramento City Library, and does workshops for many local societies. In addition, she has lectured for the Salt Lake Institute.

Genealogy is her hobby and her passion which she hopes to share with all of you.
