10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Fort Myers Regional Library, South Building, 1651 Lee Street, Fort Myers
"Taking a Stand: Understanding German Social Status" presented by Ken Weaver.
 
Understanding the German word "Stand" is an important one in unlocking your ancestor’s life in centuries gone by. The term dates back to feudal times and impacted life in the German-speaking territories until the 20th century. This presentation will examine the history of the concept, its evolution into its modern meaning of one's profession, and will assist you with resources to unlock your ancestor's "Stand."
 
Ken is the leader of the German Roots Special Interest Group of the Lee County Genealogical Society with detailed experience in research and instruction on this topic.
 
Advance Registration is required.  Patrons may register for the classes using one of the following options:

DNA: What to Expect When You're Testing by Janeen Bjork.
The AncestryDNA, the 23andMe and MyHeritage marketing campaigns have been great successes and have led millions of people to order test kits. Maybe you've already taken a test and need help understanding your results. Or you have been thinking about it but wanted to know more before you made the commitment. You are encouraged to bring your questions and your relatives who are reluctant to test.
 
Janeen Bjork is a TV Researcher and Genealogy teacher. She will present an introduction to DNA testing for Genealogy that is meant to be accessible to everyone. The discussion will cover the three types of DNA tests (autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y-DNA) and the companies that offer them. The costs of the tests, as well as the best ways to save money on testing, will also be discussed. Real reports will be shown to demonstrate what testing for DNA matches and ethnicity can (and can't) reveal. Attendees will see how different results from five different companies can be. Ms. Bjork has permission from about a dozen relatives to show their test results.
 
The meeting of the society will be via GoToWebinar, a meeting platform that will allow us to meet virtually sponsored by the Florida State Genealogical Society
 
You must pre-register to attend:
 
 
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing an “invitation” and information/link for joining the virtual meeting/webinar. About 10 minutes before our meeting click on the invitation link. We will join you at the time of the meeting and will then proceed with our scheduled presentation.

Road Trip! Planning a Research Trip (On- or Off-line) with Ann Staley.

When taking a trip, a map of the route and area we are visiting is a huge help. Our research "trip" to/through the records and repositories should be no different. What we need is a genealogy road map. We will look at a number of ways of creating a research plan, using timelines, "researching" the repository, tips & tricks for packing, computer programs to help with analyzing your data before you go, and more.
