Event Description

All Politics is Local. These words, spoken by former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neil, still ring true. Whether your ancestor was elected to public office or just aspired to serve, lots of records, photos and campaign material may be available for your research. Former four-time political candidate, Tina Beaird, will guide you through the political process and explain what records may exist and where to find them.
