Carroll County Register of Deeds will speak to geneaology group on May 9

OSSIPEE — The Lakes Region Genealogy Interest Group and the Wolfeboro Public Library are co-sponsoring a program presented by Ann Aiton of the Carroll County Registry of Deeds called "How to Navigate the Registry of Deeds."
This program will be held at the Carroll County Registry of Deeds in the Administration Building on Route 171 in Ossipee on Thursday, May 9 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The program is free and open to all.
The primary function of the Registry of Deeds is to record the purchase and sale of land and buildings in Carroll County, but there are other valuable documents held in their archives as well. Besides deeds there are records of liens, mortgages, old maps, histories, cemetery records, surveys, powers of attorney and records of military discharge. Ann Aiton will review how to use the computer system, the indexes and give an overview of what materials are available to assist those working on family history.
The Lakes Region Genealogy Interest Group presents free workshops with the Wolfeboro Public Library on a monthly basis. For more information call Cindy Scott at the Wolfeboro Public Library at 569-2428.
