Description: The Western New York Genealogical Society will host James R.
Lawson, professional genealogist and the President of the Niagara County
Genealogical Society, as he discusses "Deeds and Land Records". Land was

should be equally important to us in our research. Join us as we learn how
to get closer to our ancestors by getting closer to their land.
