Jamboree Live Broadcast: "But it Ain't Really the Original Record!" - Kory Meyerink AG, FUGA

Even microfilms are usually made from copies of the originals. However, there is hope as this lecture reveals the differences between copies and the acual document, as well as what to do to make sure you are using the best possible records for your research
