They enable researchers to track families in numerous ways, including: migration patterns (or lack thereof), family research as the size of the household increases or decreases as children are born, grow up and move out to form their own households, uncover facts the social and economic factors of family members and communities such as professions, trades and real estate.  Our seminar will examine the research benefits of using both federal and state/territorial census.

Program: "The Everyday Life of our Ancestors" presented by C. Ann Staley, CG, CGL

We sometimes forget that our ancestors had flesh and bones and stories to tell. Our ancestors led lives, just like us - only different. Using our life as an example, how can we parallel it to theirs? They ate and drank, married and had families, dressed, had trades and occupations, practiced a religion, dabbled in the arts and sciences, participated in politics and economics, etc. Placing our ancestors into their historical context and adding personal details takes time, but it can be done.

  •     Placing our ancestor in a timeline.
  •     Finding Historical Context
  •     Homelife, Weather and the Farmer's Almanac
  •     Ancestral Photographs, Postcards, etc
  •     What Did Your Ancestor Wear?
  •     Court Records
  •     Occupations
  •     Events of the day and the times
  •     And much more.
