Second Welsh Family History Seminar  (Conferences-Seminars)
9:30 am to 12:00 pm
United Baptist Church, On the Green, Poultney, Rutland County, Vermont
The Welsh-American Genealogical Society will host Susan Davies Sit in Vermont for a Second Welsh family history seminar.
 
A Welsh family history seminar, “Researching your Welsh Family Tree, Part II: Digging into Welsh Birth, Marriage and Death Records”, by Susan Davies Sit, Genealogist, will be held Saturday, May 6th in Poultney, Rutland County, Vermont from 9:30 a.m. to NOON. Sponsored by the Welsh-American Genealogical Society, Inc., the seminar will be held in the Town Room of historic (circa 1805) United Baptist Church, On the Green, East Poultney. East Poultney is the birth place of the late George Jones, Co-founder of The New York Times newspaper. This 1805 structure is the chapel in which the Jones family attended worship and were deacons.
 
Susan Davies Sit, who was born in North Wales, has been researching her own family tree branches throughout Wales, England, Scotland and the U.S.A. for more than 40 years. She enjoys helping others with their genealogy research, mostly in Wales and the U.S.A. She has also completed extensive research of her husband’s heritage in China. President of the Welsh Society of Western New England, Susan is also member of the Welsh-American Genealogical Society (U.S.A.) and the Gwynedd Family History Society (U.K.). On May 6th, Susan will help one maneuver through family history by digging into Welsh birth, marriage and death records. Additionally, she will expand upon some of the topics discussed at her June 2016 presentation such as: life in Wales before emigration to the U.S.A., values of U.S. and U.K. census records, birth, marriage and death (BMD) records, U.S. state records, newspapers, obituaries, use of paid websites for research and compiling a family tree. A limited number of one-on-one sessions with Susan may also be held.

The Saturday morning session will be followed on-site by a “Bring Your Own Bag Lunch” fellowship time prior to one-on-one sessions with Susan. (NOTE: Should attendees prefer, there will also be ample time to go across the street to the historic, now 155-year old, East Poultney General Store to purchase lunch from its deli.) Cold soda and bottled water will be provided on-site at the seminar. Attendees are encouraged to bring a Welsh dessert to share.
 
After the luncheon, Pastor Todd Eaton of United Baptist Church will be available for a guided tour of the historic chapel; the chapel and its community which helped to shape the formative years in the life of the late George Jones. Co-founder of The New York Times newspaper, Jones was born in East Poultney, Vermont of Welsh–born parents having emigrated to America from Llanwyddelan Parish, Montgomeryshire, Wales in 1799.
 
The seminar is open to the public—all interested Welsh family genealogists are welcome to register for this seminar. Seating for this event is limited; registration is first come, first serve.

2017 NGS (National Genealogical Society) Family History Conference  (Conferences-Seminars)
Raleigh, North Carolina
2017 Family History Conference, Family History Lives Here. The North Carolina State Genealogical Society will be the local host for this conference.
 
Throughout its history, North Carolina has been home to a diverse population including Native Americans and those who trace their heritage back to Europe and Africa. During colonial times, it was one of a few colonies that embraced religious diversity, welcoming Quakers, Huguenots, Methodists, and Moravians. It is a land rich in cultural traditions. From the lighthouses on the outer banks to the falling waters on the Piedmont, to the dramatic overlooks in the mountains, this land calls us back to take a closer look. The Tar Heel story is vibrant, shared through the words of each family, and recorded in the wonderful records, manuscripts, and artifacts preserved in the numerous North Carolina archives, special collections, museums, libraries, historical sites, and societies.

International Germanic Genealogy Conference  (Conferences-Seminars)
Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel, 7025 Northland Dr. N., Minneapolis, Minnesota
 
One year ago a partnership was created between genealogy societies in the United States and German genealogy societies in Europe.  Just as we are interested in what life was like for our ancestors in Germanic Europe so are Germans interested in what life was like for their ancestors who came to the United States. This partnership has been very successful in its first year and is growing. The name of the new organization is the German American Genealogical Partnership.

One of the Partnership goals is to have a 3-day International German Conference in 2017.  It will be held on Friday, July 28 thru Sunday, July 30.  The German Genealogy Society in Minneapolis volunteered to host it. In 2018 it will be in Germany and in 2019 in California. The conference will be held in the Marriott Conference hotel in a northwest suburb of Minneapolis.
