Breaking Through Brick Walls: Taking the Long way Around  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Greg Liverman
 
Second in the series on Breaking Brick Walls, Greg goes deeper into the skills sets used when analysis leads to new avenues around the wall. One of the most effective techniques for getting around a brick wall in tracing your family is to examine associates: other family members, friends, neighbors or people who travelled with your family from their ancestral homeland. This indirect approach, the “long way around”, quite often yields new information about your ancestors.
 
New records are digitized and published every day. Another effective technique is periodic re-searching of those repositories for new records. Case studies will illustrate how the indirect approach, coupled with re-searching digital repositories broke through two big brick walls. In one case a female ancestor’s family was discovered. In another, a linkage to a European pedigree was discovered that stretched back to the 1500s.

What Is That Old Family Photo REALLY Telling You?  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Lisa Lisson
 
Old family photographs can put a face to an ancestor’s name, but they offer much more to the genealogy researcher.  Clues to a family’s socio-economic status, culinary heritage and even an ancestor’s personality can be discovered and used to further one’s research process and more fully tell their stories. Learn how to mine old family photos for family history clues and gain a unique perspective on your ancestors’ lives.
