Kilts & Clans:  Researching Your Scottish Immigrant - Cynthia Guffey

Early Scottish immigrants were often motivated by poverty in the home country or land ownership in America. Some Scots came willingly, others came as indentured servants or expelled from the country as criminals. Most Scots were hardworking farmers and businessmen.

The program will discuss emigration periods from Scotland. We’ll look at the research steps to take once you discover a Scottish immigrant ancestor. The focus will be on pre-1841 Scottish emigrants. On-line records from free and subscription sites will be examined, including tips on how best to use Scotland’s People and FamilySearch. Various types of records including parish, christening, marriage, burial, military, and church minutes will be used to trace Scottish individuals. Sources for maps, photos, and Scottish surnames will be illustrated. By documenting the research, patterns can be found to help narrow your search and locate your Scottish family!

Access will be through GoToWebinar. Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and again 1 hour prior to the event. Making the connection is quick and easy only requiring a computer and Internet connectivity from wherever you chose to watch the event.

NUCMC and Its Cousins:  Keys to Lost Ancestral Records - Paula Stuart-Warren

Where might Great Aunt Sadie’s diary be today? What ethnic or religious organization records have survived for our immigrants? What repository houses the business records of an ancestor? Where might you find the files of a relative who was working on a lineage society application? As our families migrated westward, whether by foot, wagon, or train, the records associated with them may have been left in several places. Many genealogists think that there may be no records for part of the family. However, there may be substantial information buried away in a manuscript collection. There are many FREE finding aids online and off that lead to these nuggets that represent hundreds of years of material. The Minnesota and Wisconsin historical societies are home to thousands of manuscript collections.

You may have heard family stories about an relative who was “different” or perhaps you’ve discovered someone who simply “disappeared.” LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered) people can be found when researching genealogy, but the search syntax, keywords and strategies are very different. By understanding the basics of “gay history” as well as how LGBT folk lived, worked and socialized, you’ll not only locate these relatives, but realize the importance of preserving their stories.

Researching African American Ancestors:  Funeral Programs and Photo Archives - Diane L. Richard

20th-Century African American researchers will find funeral programs and photo archives invaluable. There is a rich tradition revolving around funeral programs. As a result, numerous archives have intentionally collected them, and many are now placing them online for all to access. You will find many details of genealogical relevance that help us fill in evidentiary gaps, and sometimes photos are included. Speaking of pictures, there is something magical about seeing a photograph of an ancestor we may have never met that is priceless. Let’s explore some collections rich in photos of African Americans; maybe your ancestors are included.

How to Locate an Ancestor in Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada (When You Don't Know Where They Lived) - Janice Nickerson
This webinar will provide strategies and resources to help you discover where your ancestor lived in Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada, when you don’t have a specific place of origin. These include the types of records you should search in your ancestors’ place of later settlement, as well as records that are specific to Ontario (which, depending on the time period, might be called Ontario, Canada West or Upper Canada) research. As the focus here is on locating your ancestor, we will focus on province-wide records and indexes. We will not cover the many records and indexes that are useful to the genealogist once the place of residence is known. Handout materials will include references for specific publications and records.

From Slavery to Freedom:  Restoring the History of an African America Family through te Witness Stones Project - Dennis Culliton

The presentation will share the history of an African American family that was captured and brought to Boston in 1728. From that start, we will explore eleven generations, three in captivity, of a family that includes a “King of the Slaves,” a Presbyterian minister, a weather profit, a Tuskegee Airman, to a living state representative who was the first woman of color elected in a rural district in Connecticut in 2018. Culliton will share primary documents, anecdotes, and other materials used to uncover this story. He will also explain how this family story was the foundational research used to create and spread the Witness Stones Project from Guilford, Connecticut and beyond.

Dennis Culliton is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Witness Stones Project. He retired from twenty-five years of teaching history in 2019 to pursue this project full time. He holds a B.A. in Anthropology from UMass Amherst, a M.A. in Teaching History from Quinnipiac University and a Sixth-Year degree from the University of New England.

The Witness Stones Project seeks to restore the history and honThe Witness Stones Project seeks to restore the history and honor the humanity and contributions of the enslaved individuals who helped build our communities. Inspired by the Stolperstein project in Germany (and with their blessing), it bears witness by installing a marker which recalls an enslaved individual at a site of significance, such as where they lived, worked, or prayed. We cannot change the past, but we can, through this project, give a voice to the voiceless by uncovering their stories. We partner with local schools and historical societies to assist students in researching the history of an enslaved individual from their community and reconstructing the memory of that person through the written record.

Deciphering Old Documents

Let's face it. In genealogy and historical research finding a relevant document is often only half the battle. Then you have to make sense of it!

Handwriting can be hard to read. Ink can smudge and letters were sometimes formed in odd ways. If you can figure out what all of the words are, challenges remain in understanding what they all mean!

Old documents are filled with obscure abbreviations, outdated medical and legal terminology and terms for family relationships and occupations that are no longer used.

Join us as our Genealogy and Local History Librarian discusses these and other challenges in Deciphering Old Documents!

Part of APL's Spring 2021 "Deeper into Family History" Virtual Genealogy Series.

This event will be held virtually and registration is required. Your registration confirmation email will include the Zoom access information.
