Your ancestors at work

It's easy to focus on vital records and leave other research opportunities by the wayside. The Indiana Historical Society is offering a November 15 workshop in Indianapolis that sounds like a great corrective:

"Jobs are family destiny. Most immigrants came to America for the freedom to work, especially to work for more money. This two-hour workshop, featuring Indiana genealogy expert Ron Darrah, will show you how to use work records to follow and understand your ancestors. Advance registration is required. For more information, call (317) 234-1830 or e-mail"

Ironically, I have to work that day.
