I missed it too.

It was recorded.  Available here if you have a free guest account:  https://www.americanancestors.org/education/learning-resources/watch  I watched it yesterday and picked up some good tips.

Hazzard is an old southern name that I have tripped over numerous times.  Thanks. I'll try to catch it.

I also missed it because our Internet connection went down.

I guess they will have a lot of web traffic to watch the recording. cheeky

Sorry, the outage was the day before on the 9th.

It was a global outage. I could go to gmail and youtube. No where else.

My Hazards are actually from early colonial Rhode Island, but I think a branch may have gone south.  (And we recently discovered that my family's Hazard connection is by adoption... my great grandfather was adopted by his stepfather, Frank Hazard.)  My southern connection is through my paternal grandmother- Lavender, Savage, Stokes, and others.

Enjoy the webinar!
@Lynette, the outage was at my house.
@Lisa: The Rhode Island Hazards included some wealthy textile manufacturers, who undoubtedly spent time on the South procuring cotton and possibly also selling product.
