Using Another Library Source: the Government Document Section  (Education/Training)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by Patricia Stamm, CG, CGL
 
As family historians go through the library to their local genealogy department, many quickly bypass the library’s Government Document Section. All offices of our federal government compiled, printed, and disseminated an assortment of reports and maps. Over the years, the GPO sent these publications out to various regional and selective depository libraries. Many times these publications contain unusual and one of a kind information pertaining to people and their surroundings. Repeatedly these publications contain unusual and one of a kind information. This session demonstrates the type of information included in Government Documents, how to search, locate, and obtain these federal gems.

Evaluating Shared DNA  (Education/Training)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by  Paul Woodbury
 
DNA testing companies estimate the nature of your genetic relationships to DNA cousins based on the types, amounts and locations of shared DNA. Nevertheless, their estimations are typically quite broad. In this webinar, learn to analyze the DNA you share with genetic cousins to better estimate the nature of your relationships. Explore probabilities of relationship based on total shared DNA, number of segments, types of shared DNA, and relationships to multiple individuals. Navigate genetically equivalent relationships. Interpret shared DNA within the context of other available evidence. Evaluate proposed relationships and guard against the possibility of misattributed parentage or half relationships. Learn to better utilize genetic evidence in the exploration of family trees.

Program:  Planning a Very Successful Genealogical Trip
Before you head out on your next genealogy research trip, let George G. Morgan help you make it a success. George’s presentation will help you maximize your research time the way professionals do it, and return home with a genealogical treasure trove.
 
Program description –
Regardless of whether you’re going to the library or heading out on a genealogical vacation, advance preparation is essential. You have to know who you are researching, what information you hope to find, what resources are available, and where to find them. A well-organized genealogist is the most effective researcher.  This seminar discusses numerous resources you can use to prepare for the most effective genealogical research trips you’ll ever make. We’ll examine books, periodicals, maps, Web pages, Internet mailing lists, city governments, libraries and archives, genealogical and historical societies, family associations, church secretaries, sextons and other resources you should use to gather advance information to help develop your research schedule.
 
Biography –
George G. Morgan is president of Aha! Seminars, Inc. He was a key training manager for Sears, Roebuck, Co., in the 1980s. He spearheaded the development of the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) implementation program for Montgomery Ward & Co. and then for Sears, Roebuck & Co. He also managed the development of an award-winning PC-based EDI software package while with Sears Technology Services, Inc., coordinated the construction of two state-of-the-art training facilities, and developed the training program to support a roll-out of the software to over 600 of Sears’ smaller suppliers. George worked for Advantis, a subsidiary of IBM, coordinating development and production of over 60 training sessions for its annual customer conferences, attended by between 1,500 to 2,000 of IBM’s and Advantis’ largest customers. These sessions spanned a broad spectrum
of mainframe, mid-range, and microcomputer applications including the Internet and email, network communication technologies such as dial, leased line, ATM, ISDN, DOV, and LAN gateway, and customers’ applications using the IBM network, its products, and services.

Lesser Used Records for Research in the Netherlands  (Education/Training)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by  Yvette Hoitink, CG
 
The Netherlands has excellent records. Records of births, marriages, and deaths were kept by the civil registration since 1811 and by churches since the early 1600s. Genealogists who don’t look beyond these records may create trees that go back ten generations, but they can be bare or have mistakes. By expanding the research to lesser used sources, we can learn more about our ancestors’ lives and find evidence of family relationships to build reliable conclusions. Using examples from her own research, Yvette will demonstrate how to find and use court, notarial, military, and cadastral records, and other records you may not have used before. Find out if your Dutch ancestors owned property, what their occupations were, or even what they looked like. See them in the context of their families and associates, and understand their roles in the communities where they lived.

Ten Tools for Genealogical Writing  (Education/Training)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by  Harold Henderson, CG
 
Genealogists love to research, but writing it up – not so much. First, we need to read good writing (any kind). Then, practice writing in two separate compartments: write as it comes, and return later to fix or edit. Don’t worry about beginnings or endings; they will emerge over time. Seek out helpful critics, never wait until the last minute, and be ready to learn from editors.
