Free webinar covers researching public records

DACC Community Education will host a free webinar, "Researching Public Records" with Leigh Ann Wilson at noon Aug. 14. Have you ever wanted to look up some information on your ancestors? Or find out the ownership history of a certain piece of property in your town? Or maybe you want to know if a potential employee, tenant or companion has a criminal background. With this course, you will learn how to utilize free or low-cost websites and gather the information you seek without hiring an expensive (and sometimes unreliable) third party research firm. In this webinar, you will discover key points about researching public records and what you will get out of the course. To register, go to https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/926683608.
