Featuring Judy G. Russell, "The Legal Genealogist"

Judy is a genealogist with a law degree, and her purpose at The Legal Genealogist is, in part, to help folks understand the often arcane and even impenetrable legal concepts and terminology that are so very important to those of us studying family history. Without understanding the context in which events took place and records were created, we miss so much of both the significance and the flavor of what happened.
