Schools, Jails, and Asylums: Your Ancestor’s Institutional Life by Gena Philibert-Ortega
  No matter who your ancestor was, chances are they interacted with at least one institution in their life. These records can help you tell the unique story of your ancestor’s life. What records exist for schools, jails, hospitals and asylums? In this presentation our speaker will explore various types of institutional records, what they reveal about our ancestors, and where they can be found.
