How Far? How Heavy? How Much? When Did It Happen? Learn About the Different Numbers Our Ancestors Used in Their Daily Lives (General)

July 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Genealogical researchers are always coming across numbers when researching their ancestors, but often don’t know what they mean.  How far is a distance of 43 poles? Is a Troy ounce the same as a modern ounce? Is hogshead a real term or something the Beatles made up? How about money – was 10 pounds in Pennsylvania the same as 10 pounds in North Carolina? Even calendar dates can get confusing – what do they mean by February 15, 1745/6? This webinar will discuss the history and meaning of different measurements like lengths, weights, distances, and volume, as well as money and calendars to make your research more meaningful.
