On October 7, 2018, the South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society will present "Solving Genealogy Problems with Land Plats" by speaker Jerry Smith. Land plats, drawing of land tracts from local land records, surveys from the Pennsylvania Land Office, or even drawings you make yourself from deeds or other documents can be the key to unravel genealogical mysteries.  This talk shows how land plats have solved real research problems including locating unknown cemeteries, establishing family relationships, sorting out same-name individuals, and providing evidence when more traditionally-used record sets are silent.

South Central Pennsylvania Genealogical Society, Inc. (SCPGS) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of genealogists.  Their primary geographic area of interest and coverage is Pennsylvania’s York and Adams Counties. Their purpose is to encourage and promote an interest in genealogy by collecting and preserving materials related to genealogy, encouraging the compilation and publication of family genealogies and histories, publishing materials of interest and benefit to members, holding meetings for the education of members and the public, and offering financial and volunteer support to the library at the York County History Center.

Monthly meetings are held in the Meeting Hall of the York County History Center, at 250 East Market Street, York, Pennsylvania unless otherwise noted. The business portion of the meeting begins at 2:15 PM and the program begins at about 2:30 PM. Meetings are FREE and open to the public.
