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.

Documentation & Citation: Keep Calm and Cite Your Sources!  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online - Zoom
Presented by Alice Hoyt Veen
 
Source documentation and citations are important components of every successful family history project. Citing sources creates a permanent “breadcrumb trail” that others can follow and enhances the credibility of research findings. It takes self-discipline and thoughtfulness, but well-documented research stands the test of time. This presentation begins with the basics, then digs deeper into evolving standards for documenting 21st century sources. Discussion includes practical examples and step-by-step practice.

Beginning Genealogy  (Class)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Hybrid - In Person and Zoom
Presented by Noel Ferre
 
Knowing where to begin your family research can be overwhelming and confusing.  We'll keep your head from spinning by focusing on how to start your genealogy journey the correct way and avoid some of the mistakes that many of us made when we began our research.  We’ll define terms and best practices, and learn what records are available and how to find them. We’ll look at how to organize our research and where to put all the data that we find.  Many a seasoned genealogist has had to go back and make corrections after years of research (including your presenter). Let’s avoid some common mistakes and get started on the right foot!
