Christine Johns Cohen - Was Your Ancestor an Inventor?  Did They Have a Patent or Copyright?
Did your farmer ancestor become an inventor and obtain a patent?  Let's explore resources to see the diagrams and schematics of inventions to add interesting details about your ancestors' lives.  Many patents were issued for agricultural implements, ranch tools, and other devices that assisted in running the American homestead.  Did you know that citizenship, name changes, women's maiden names and home addresses are listed on a US patent?  There are 10 million patents issued as of June 2018.  We will also learn if your ancestor penned an article, wrote a novel, or a ballad.
NOTE:  The LAFSL is located behind the Los Angeles LDS Temple on “Temple Hill” and downstairs in the Visitor’s Center. Access is via the east side of the Visitor’s Center.
