NGS Announces Publication of Genealogy and the Law by Kay and William Freilich

ARLINGTON, VA, 26 AUGUST 2014: The National Genealogical Society announces the release of Genealogy and the Law: A Guide to Legal Sources for the Family Historian by Kay Haviland Freilich, CG, CGL, FNGS and William B. Freilich, Esq. Genealogy and the Law guides readers through the variety of legal sources that genealogists need in order to explain many of the events that occurred in their ancestors’ lives. Land ownership, estate administration, and taxation are a few of the many aspects of life that cannot be fully understood without knowledge of the law in effect at the time.

The authors, an award-winning genealogist and an attorney, both with long service in their professions, bring the perspectives of genealogy and the law together in a book that covers the language of the law, how to find pertinent laws, the kinds of sources available, where they can be found, citation of legal works, and how to apply legal research to genealogical problems.

Genealogy and the Law may be pre-ordered at the NGS booth at the Federation of Genealogical Societies Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas, August 27–30. After September 1, it can be ordered from the NGS online store at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org. Copies of the book are expected to be ready for shipment by October 1.

Founded in 1903, the National Genealogical Society is dedicated to genealogy education, high research standards, and the preservation of genealogical records. The Arlington, Virginia–based nonprofit is the premier national society for everyone, from the beginner to the most advanced family historian, seeking excellence in publications, educational offerings, research guidance, and opportunities to interact with other genealogists. Please visit the NGS Pressroom for further information.
