Good Deeds: Property Records and Family History Research

Robin

Robin Robinson, in just her first year and a half as the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds, has taken on the massive project of preserving the historic deed books found deteriorating in a Bucks County warehouse. Approximately half of those 700 books have been fully restored. The Mercer Museum, hearing about Robin’s efforts, invited her to speak alongside professional genealogist Dr. Connie Ace for an evening presentation. Robin will be discussing restoration process of the deed books, followed by a presentation by Dr. Ace on how to use these books to do historic family research. This event will take place on Thursday, June 27th from 6:00-7:30 pm. Robinson says, “Dr. Connie Ace is one of the leading genealogists in the country and I am looking forward to sharing the stage with her.” Dr. Connie Ace, founder of Ace Genealogy Research & Consulting, LLC, has been performing genealogical research for more than two decades. She is a member of several genealogical groups, including, the Association of Professional Genealogists and, locally, the Bucks County Historical Society. “Learning more about how to research the deed books is important to me” Robinson says. “I am exciting to be able to pass this knowledge on to both my staff and the public.” This event is open to both members (free) and the public ($10.00). Tickets for this can be found at www.mercermuseum.org To contact the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds office, please call 215-348-6209.
