"County and Local Histories: Putting Your Ancestors in Context"

Our direct-line ancestor may not have been a prominent member of the community nor have been included in the county history, but that doesn’t mean we discard the old local history as a valuable genealogical resource. Look deeper and analyze the evidence!

October – 15 – George G Morgan "Using Multiple Databases in Tandem to Solve Problems"

This program discusses how to use the major genealogical databases and your own compilation of sites and resources to locate as much evidence as possible to help find proof to answer questions.  It also mentions some of the new DNA tools by Ancestry DNA and MyHeritage DNA.

November – 19 – Donna Moughty – "Immigration"

 Which port?  When?  Why?  From where? 

Questions surround the immigration process that made us all Americans.  If you’ve worked your way back to your immigrant ancestors, this program will help you find the spot from which they left and on which they landed. 

December – 17 – Annette Burke Lyttle
