7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Presenter: Dr. Deborah Abbott
 
Bringing Your Ancestor to Life
Your Ancestors are more than names and dates. Discovering the courageous stories that fill the dash between birth and death will breathe life into your ancestors and help in your quest to unlock the unique doors of your family history. In order to share your genealogy with finesse, interest and appeal, you must answer the “who, what, where, why and how” questions about your ancestors. In this lecture, learn how to recognize the clues that will lead to interesting family stories. While creating and unraveling your family history, we will explore the effective use of censuses, vital records, newspapers, deeds, manuscripts, and other ways to find supporting documents. Case studies will be used.

WCGS Monthly Meeting - State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools
Thursday, October 21
WCGS Monthly Meeting - State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools  (Monthly Meetings)
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Online meeting
Presenter:  Bernard Meisner
 
State and Territorial Censuses Underused Genealogical Tools
Genealogists are familiar with the federal census records, however, the state and territorial censuses remain a much under-used resource because they were not taken systematically and centrally archived. In this presentation Mr. Meisner will discuss these other census reports and their value in filling in the gaps between the federal census years, and in providing additional information concerning your families, their occupations, and the places they lived.
