Editing Your Own Writing:  Part 2 - Thomas W. Jones, Phd, CG
Genealogists write. Their written narratives include stories of ancestral families, biographies of individual ancestors, and explanations supporting genealogical proofs. For their writing to succeed, genealogists—like all effective writers—repeatedly self-edit everything they write. The process results in polished products that the genealogist’s readers will understand, enjoy, and cherish.

Emphasizing genealogical narrative, these two webinars will address the self-editing process. Part 1 will focus on “big-picture” editing, including stages of self-editing; focus; keeping the writer out of the narrative; editing the writing’s overall structure, organization, and flow; and improving major and minor subdivisions of written genealogical narratives, including paragraphing. Part 2 will focus on “nitty-gritty” editing, including capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, spelling, word choice, and reducing word count.

Juneteenth:  How Emancipation Came to Texas and How We Celebrate - Sharon Batiste Gillins
This lecture details the true story of how freedom finally came to Texas more than 2 years after the effective date of the Emancipation Proclamation. Common myths will be replaced with the truth of the events that occurred and the atmosphere of the surrounding Galveston community, including the presence of United States Colored Troops among the Union soldiers who arrived to enforce emancipation for over 300,000 enslaved people of Texas. Finally, it follows the evolution of celebrations of emancipation beginning with spontaneous celebrations that occurred in 1865 on the docks of the Galveston Wharf, to the first documented citywide celebration in Galveston, to today’s recognition of Juneteenth as an important historical event celebrated throughout the nation and even the world.

Digging for Gold in Colonial North Carolina Records
Due to extensive record losses, colonial research can be quite challenging. The further back we go, the fewer extant records we find. That said, there are goldmines to be explored. We’ll discuss what records survive and what you will want to pursue when researching this period. Recent digitization efforts (State Archives of North Carolina) and resource access (via the State Library of North Carolina), along with an increasing number of new and unique colonial-era focused projects, give us unparalleled access to the records of this period and opportunities to dig for gold. We’ll leverage the heritage of Joel Lane, whose land became the basis for the NC capital city, Raleigh, and discoveries made about him and his family throughout the talk. A lot of “mining” was done to identify extant relevant records. Besides important colonial-era resources, we’ll discuss research strategies for dealing with commonly repeated names – a challenge when researching 17th-mid-19th century ancestors.

Kentucky and Virtgina Tax Lists:  5½ Strategies for Identifying That Elusive Southerner - Gail Jackson Miller, CG
Kentucky and Virginia have some of the most complete tax lists in the United States. Their value in research often goes unrecognized by even the experienced researcher. Tax lists can be a primary tool for solving difficult research problems and are invaluable when used with other records. Learn how to access original records, to best organize them for study, and to interpret their meaning. The lecture will use case studies to show their use in tracking individuals across time, estimating birth dates and death dates, separating individuals of the same name, determining the identity of other family members, and using them as substitutes for deeds, court records, and estate records in burned counties.
