Collections Conundrums and How Genealogy Cracked the Case
MHS AT 200 SERIES: A Talk with Tiffany Link

Recorded on October 18, 2022

In this talk, Collections Curator Tiffany Link explains how MHS staff use genealogy research to verify the provenance of a Civil War era doll, fill in the story of a couple featured in an early photograph, and research a murder noted on an architectural drawing.
