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.

Through hundreds of genealogy blog posts, YouTube videos and online masterclasses, she shares research strategies and how-to tutorials to take the overwhelm out of genealogy research.  Find her at www.LisaLisson.com.

Dowered or Bound Out: Records of Widows and Orphans  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Judy Russell
 
Widows and orphans have always had a special place in the law. But it’s not always the place that 21st century researchers might expect. An orphan in the early days wasn’t a child whose parents had died, but rather a child whose father had died. The law didn’t care much about the mother. She was just the widow, entitled to her dower rights and generally not much more. Learn more of the way the law treated widows and orphans, and what the records may tell us about them.
