Courthouse Field Trip

Tomorrow, 15 August, the PGS is sponsoring a field trip to the Pinellas County Courthouse. Damon is going to be the leader of this event (about a year ago he lead a similar trip and it was very well-received). We will meet at the Old Courthouse, 324 S Ft Harrison in Clearwater, specifically, in the Court yard west of the building at 11 am.

I hope many of you will choose to take advantage of this event even though you may not be doing any Pinellas County research. Although all courthouses are not alike in what records they keep and how you access them, there are enough commonalities that becoming familiar with one courthouse can pay you dividends in your dealings with others. This is one of those great opportunities to sharpen your general research skills.
