"Skeletons in the Family Closet: Dealing with the Unexpected" presented by Karen A. Fortin.
 
We all find scandals, scalawags, and other surprises in the course of our genealogical research. This presentation explores some of the unexpected, and sometimes unsavory, facts that may arise and ethical considerations to keep in mind when deciding how to share them.
 
Karen Fortin received a Bachelor's Degree in History and a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of South Florida. She worked at the Barbara S. Ponce Public Library in Pinellas Park, Florida for 30 years before deciding to focus on genealogical research. 
 
Karen's love of history, especially family history, led her to an interest in genealogy. She began volunteering with the Pinellas Genealogy Society in Largo, Florida in 2012 and was the society's president from 2014-2017. Karen began providing genealogy and history presentations in 2016 and has lectured at various genealogical societies and public libraries. One of her goals is to help people explore historical periods, places, and events so that they can better understand their ancestors and the world in which they lived. 
 
The meeting of the society will be via GoToWebinar, a meeting platform that will allow us to meet virtually.

Many families have the oral history that an ancestor was Native American. Minnesota has a significant Native American community and a long history of interaction with non-Native populations over centuries. How does a family researcher begin to discover if it is true that an ancestor is of Native background? What federal, state, and tribal records are available?
