Systemwide Series: 
Family History Month

Professional genealogist, speaker and researcher, Mark Lowe returns to Tulsa for a full weekend of genealogy programming. Lowe's warm personality and down-to-earth approach has made him popular with the Tulsa research community. He will begin the day showing how maps, atlases and gazetteers can be used to locate family farms and residences. Following a break, he will follow a case through court, explaining the basic records of the legal system. After lunch he will discuss private claims made by civilian families requesting payment for services or damages. Learn how and when these requests were honored, ignored or lost, and what information might be found in them. We will end the day with a behind-the-scenes look at the research and preparation done before those genealogical TV programs are aired. Using clips and actual research problems, Lowe will show us how the story is told.
