Don't miss our 27th annual Spring Seminar with Micheal Lacopo
His lectures will be :
“SHE CAME FROM NOWHERE...” - USING SOCIAL HISTORY IN YOUR RESEARCH. This lecture employs a problem-solving approach utilizing social history, female research and family analysis to identify the parents of Elizabeth Stith, the ancestor “from nowhere.” Accentuates how the knowledge of social history can be the glue that holds your proof argument together.
MAGNIFICENT, MAGICAL, MESMERIZING MANUSCRIPT COLLECTIONS! These types of records form an enormous part of most archival collections, yet most genealogists grossly underutilize them. This lecture will help you locate them, understand what information they can yield and use them to break down brick walls!
ESTATE FILES: ARE YOU GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THEM? Genealogists love to find wills and probate records for their ancestors, but are you reading between the lines? How can you milk the most information out of a boring accounting of an estate? What gems are you missing by just stopping at the will book?
“I AM POOR, OBSCURE, PLAIN, AND LITTLE.” RESEARCHING THE INVISIBLE ANCESTORS. If your ancestors had little money, they did not buy and sell land, they did not leave wills or probates, they did not purchase stones for graves. How do you find them? This lecture will show you how!
In addition to these great presentations, we will also have several tables with exhibits from local historical or educational societies, as well as our extensive selection of used books for sale. (If you just can't wait until then to find the perfect book, please visit our new on-line Book Store. The prices at the seminar will be $5-$10 cheaper because of the shipping charges.)
