Lectures

From ‘Baby’ Genealogist to Older (Wiser?) Genealogist: Key Tips & Tricks Along the Way. Genealogical research has pitfalls and rewards. Avoiding the former and achieving the latter are not as easy as commercial advertisers make it seem. The presenter spent twenty-seven years making lots of mistakes as a baby genealogist and another thirteen years learning from others how to overcome or avoid them. Some favorite tips and tricks are offered.

Five Basic Strategies for Research in the South: Successful research in the southern colonies and states is a challenge to anyone trying to prove parent-child relationships and substantiate family histories. For many reasons, documentation is sometimes hit or miss, and we must overcome record loss, gaps, and deterioration with alternative records and sometimes DNA results.

"____ward Ho!" Basics: Finding & Tracking Early American Settlers pre-1850. While the predominant movement of American settlers was–on aggregate–westward, many pre-1850 settlers migrated northward, southward, and sometimes eastward. Most migrations occurred in small groups banded together for protective security and collective assistance. Although every-name federal censuses beginning in 1850 (for free persons) and 1870 for all persons help point us backward in time, a researcher needs contemporary records to identify and correlate ancestors from one location to the next.
