Researching the Descendants and Ancestors of the Weeping Time People - Brian Sheffey
1859 bore witness to the largest single sale of human beings in the United States' history. 440 people were sold over a 3 day period by Pierce Mease Butler to settle his enormous debts. This presentation covers the process in researching the descendants of the 400 souls who were sold, as well as the descendants of the 400+ enslaved people Pierce Mease Butler did not sell. Collectively, this research project traces the ancestry of both groups of enslaved people further in time to connect them with their captured African ancestors who were brought to Charleston, South Carolina. The presentation covers creating a robust and flexible research strategy and the extensive international archives and repositories that have been used in the course of this research project.

MPE*:  Disconnected Connection (*misattributed parentage event) - Debbie Wilson Smyth

In genealogical circles, the acronym MPE stands for a misattributed parentage event. It is different than an adoption case or a case of an unknown parent. A misattributed parentage event encompasses those situations where parentage has been attributed to the wrong person. For example, learning that daddy wasn’t really the biological father. Finding a MPE can be an unexpected or upsetting matter. Truth is, it happens more frequently than we think. This presentation will begin with a discussion on the myths, pursuit and ethics of MPE research, when the family lore, DNA and documents diverge. The presentation will conclude with a case study exploring the speaker’s own personal MPE finding, the research approach followed, and the ethics involved.

How Testing Multiple Relatives Can Turbo Charge Your DNA Results - Michelle Leonard
Testing yourself is a great first step into DNA testing waters but how could testing other relatives help you? Testing multiple relatives can massively boost your success with DNA research and this webinar will talk you through the whole process. You will learn about DNA inheritance and why it's beneficial to test certain close relatives and cousins as well as which relatives you should aim to test first as not all relatives are as useful as others. Michelle will reveal her top DNA testing strategies, how to go about asking relatives to test and how to get the most out of multiple kits once the results arrive. She will use practical examples provided by the extensive number of family kits she manages to illustrate how these additional results give you more of your ancestors' DNA to work with, can help you narrow down all your matches, can be used to identify outliers and overlapping segments and generally aid you in taking your DNA research to the next level.
