September 11, 2011 - PROGRAM


We at the GSBC thought it might be beneficial to explore the use of computers in recording genealogical information and demonstrate how this can be done effectively and easily.  We have chosen the software package Family Tree Maker because of its general overall use and ease of access to the internet. We will be exploring the basic use of Family Tree Maker and how to retrieve and record various source documents for ease of future reference. A simple demonstration of not only how to retrieve a source document but how to copy these documents and file them within Family Tree Maker so that your records are organized and easily retrievable.  This process also cuts down on the amount of paper that one would normally use.  Also consider that any database can easily be shared with other genealogists of your choosing as well. So please come and share ideas, thoughts and experiences with GSBC and the use of Family Tree Maker. David Stark Vice President and Webmaster

Researching Your Revolutionary War Patriot Ancestor

Have you ever wondered if a Revolutionary War patriot ancestor could be hidden in your family tree?  Perhaps you are eligible to join the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) or the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), and you don’t even realize it.  If you would like to find out, this workshop is for you!! 

Debbie Duay, Ph.D. has over ten years of experience in genealogy.  She is the Lineage Research Chairman for the Florida State Society DAR.  Through Debbie’s research skills, her husband Ted has proven his descent from 38 Revolutionary War patriots, a Mayflower passenger, a Jamestowne ancestor, King Edward I of England, and Charlemagne.  Debbie has helped over 200 people join the DAR and SAR, and her free genealogy tutorials “Researching Your Patriot Ancestor” and “Researching Your Family Tree” receive more than 75 visitors each day.
