Marriages Here, There, and Nowhere: Finding Gretna Greens and Borders  (Education/Training)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by  J. Mark Lowe, CG, FUGA

Many couples chose to marry in a location away from their home. Often there were reasons why it was a more convenient location to tie the knot. Sometimes, this decision was based on a romantic location or a place that would allow them to marry quickly without a three-day waiting period. These locations are often referred to as Gretna Green, the historic town in Scotland where thousands of English couples ran because of Scotland’s sympathetic marriage laws. We will consider the reason for a different marriage location, alternate sources to determine the location, and a few of the towns known as "Gretna Greens" in the United States.

Viewing times:  8:00pm Eastern, 7:00pm Central, 6:00pm Mountain, 5:00pm Pacific

Legacy Family Tree Webinars
by  Kristy Gray

From the comfort of your home (outside the UK), trying to uncover your roots (whether in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales) can be an extremely challenging task. However, it is far from impossible with a plethora of information available online from books to databases, transcriptions to images, photographs and other (numerous) online sources. This webinar will provide individual case studies to highlight what is available online and offline, hands-on tips and details of how offline material might be accessed from afar.

Viewing times:  2:00pm Eastern, 1:00pm Central, 12:00pm Mountain, 11:00am Pacific

LCGS Monthly Membership Meeting  (LCGS Activities)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Cypress Lake Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 8260 Cypress Lake Dr, Fort Myers, FL
Program "Finding Family in Online Newspapers: Tips From My Great Grandfather" presented by Janeen Bjork.
 
Newspapers can provide a wealth of information to help you fill in gaps in your family history research. This presentation will explain how to find what you're missing (or you've missed) in your searches of online newspapers. Find out why you missed the items you missed, from someone who has found thousands of elusive items for her family, her students' families, and her clients' families. You'll learn what fee and free online newspaper resources are available, see the interfaces for those sites, and be ready to strike out on your own.
 
Janeen Bjork a TV researcher and genealogy teacher has been obsessed with the information historical newspapers contain ever since she found a story about the 1894 murder of her great-great-grandfather, William Strutz, in a Syracuse, NY newspaper. At last count, she had found over 130 different accounts of the tragedy, despite the murderer's or the victim's names being misspelled or misread by OCR (optical character recognition, the technology that allows newspapers to be indexed and searched online) in the majority of the newspapers. She'll share her search methodology via several case studies that illustrate how anyone (you!) can find and preserve family items from online newspapers.
