Inspiration for Discovering and Writing Your Family's History - Jeri Fuller Surad
For our June presentation, Jeri Fuller Surad will share her work in discovering her family history and sharing it with others. The methods for performing genealogical research have changed with the advent of the computer. The numerous genealogical databases offer easy access to millions of records. As a reminder, you will still need to verify your information with two or more sources. It is your responsibility to record accurate information connecting your family's history.

When writing a biography, you need to discover the details and personal history of your subject and their connections to their community and the times in which they lived. One great way to do that is to travel to where your ancestor lived, collecting information at the local level. I hope I have given you some inspiration to discover your family's genealogy and write your family's story!

"Fraktur und Fremdwörter" Hacks for Reading Foreign Books and Newspapers - Mary Kircher Roddy, CG
Many 19th- and early 20th-century German language newspapers were printed in a Fraktur font. And not only that, they were written in a foreign language! This combination of an archaic font and a foreign language creates two significant hurdles for the 21st century genealogist, perhaps with limited foreign language skills, to overcome. But don’t despair. Modern technology has provided solutions. Learn how to "crack the code" and discover where your favorite newspaper sites have hidden the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) text. Translation tools will quickly make those foreign words readable for even the most die-hard English-only speaker.

The video link to join the webinar will be available on the society website (pre-registration not required).
