Location Research in a Digital World - Craig Siulinski
Computers and technology provide today’s genealogists with many resources for basic research, and for communicating/collaborating with family members and colleagues, but sometimes researching on location provides family history information that you just can’t find online.

The idea of walking the pavement is surely one of the few remaining old-world endeavors of the genealogist. A research trip can unlock long-standing puzzles especially if significant prep work is done prior to hitting the road. The central ideas in this presentation involve using offline clues and networking to provide insights and answers to compelling family history questions.

The Geography of American Genealogy - Glen Holstein, PhD
Many of our ancestors were part of groups that left homelands at particular times and moved together to specific regions in America. For example, many people left Ireland during a blight that destroyed their potato crop and then moved to American places where they could make a living without growing potatoes. About the same time, political upheavals caused many Germans to settle in quite different American regions. Such migrations are just two of many that will be discussed. Together, they are the geography of genealogy. Your ancestors are part of this geography.

Why was grandma so mean? Why was grandpa so sad or angry? Why did aunt Alice avoid the family when babies or small children were around? These are questions we think but do not always ask out loud. The time to break the silence is now. There are always more than two sides to every family story. Do you ever wonder what influenced the beliefs, behaviors, & patterns of our ancestors?

We will look at our stories, genealogy & military documents to identify personal, family, and historical events that may have shaped the behaviors and attitudes of your ancestors. I will share tools & questions to help you explore your ancestors lives & what shaped their behaviors. We will also explore how their unhealed trauma, family patterns and behaviors were passed down through the generations.

The Bengali and English Ancestry of Thomas Chapman:  A Case Study with DNA - Meryl Schumacker, CG
We often talk about historical context like a side dish: it adds color and life to our narratives and deepens the analysis in our client reports. Rarely, however, do we think of historical research as a main course, a proactive strategy. This case study demonstrates not only the potential of historical research as a tool, but how that tool can be effective in the most challenging cases.

Thomas Chapman wasn’t typical of New York City immigrants at the turn of the nineteenth century. His reported birthplace of Bengal prompted more questions than answers, and FAN searches in New York produced no leads. Ultimately, a combination of historical research, DNA evidence, and traditional genealogical methods across three continents revealed the identities of his parents.

Millions of Members:  Finding Your Ancestor in Fraternal Organization Records - Melinda Kashuba
Was your ancestor a member of a fraternal or social organization? Thousands of associations emerged during the 19th and early 20th centuries to address the social, financial and occupational needs of Americans and immigrants. Ethnic and religious fraternal organizations helped ease the transition in unfamiliar surroundings, provided benefits such as tools, small loans, and burial funds. In Northern California, fraternal organizations were particularly popular among miners, farmers, and railroad employees. We often learn about an ancestor’s membership from heirlooms, insurance policies, obituaries, or tombstone iconography. Not every fraternal organization kept their records, but some did, and they survived. This lecture will help you identify your ancestor’s membership and provide a strategy to locate records if they exist.

This program will take place on Zoom. Register in advance for this meeting by clicking on the link below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Discussion will include how to determine the place of origin using records found in the United States and what to do when no records exist on your direct line.

3-2-1 Data Backup Is Great, But First You Need to Find All of Your Data - Andy Klein
By now you’ve all heard about 3-2-1 computer backup. Having three copies of your data makes sense, but this relies on knowing where your data is in the first place. Is everything on your computer? What about the external drive in the closet? Or the SD cards in the drawer? Is some of your data in a cloud application, and what happens to that data if you forget to pay the subscription? I call this problem “Data Scatter” and it is the enemy of the 3-2-1 backup model. It’s hard to back up all your data if the primary copies are scattered everywhere. Let’s walk through the problem and we’ll propose a few things you can do to reign in your data and give the 3-2-1 backup model a fighting chance.

Covering Your Bases:  An Introduction to Autosomal DNA Coverage - Paul Woodbury, Med., AG
Autosomal DNA tests are utilized in genetic genealogy to solve historic research questions by exploring the genetic traces left by deceased ancestors in the genomes of their living descendants. Any given descendant only inherits a portion of their ancestor’s DNA, and different descendants inherit different portions of that DNA. Based on the relationships between tested descendants of a research subject, it is possible to estimate how much of an ancestor’s DNA is represented in any given database. This information can help in prioritization of testing candidates and can also aid in interpretation of shared DNA between multiple groups of individuals.
