Editing Your Own Writing:  Part 1 - 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 addresses 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.

If the Walls Could Talk:  Working with Oral Histories - David Ryan
The continued growth of sources available to genealogists has changed the nature of our research. We are no longer simply concerned with where and when our ancestors lived but who they were. However, details on their day to day lives aren’t always contained in the written sources and we need to search for alternatives. Many of us will likely have conducted some form of family history interview with our relatives, but they can also be a useful source for client research. But is oral memory reliable and what effective strategies are there for making the most out of it as a source? The purpose of this presentation is to examine just how oral history can best be used by genealogists. As professionals, what is the best way to use oral histories, and what particular considerations should we be aware of?

Free and open to the public. Past Genealogy Pro Talk webinars are available for view by UGA members.

Hiding Out in the Open:  Discovering LGBT Family History - Thomas MacEntee
You may have heard family stories about a relative who was “different” or perhaps you’ve discovered someone who simply “disappeared.” Have you considered the possibility that you could have a gay or lesbian relative in your family tree? 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.

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.

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.
