American Ancestors (NEHGS)
Thursday, August 11
American Ancestors (NEHGS)  (Webinar)
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Stories from the Archives:  Family Registers - Judith Lucey and Tom Pattison
Family registers provide a snapshot of a family’s members, the vital events in their lives, and a listing of children. Made popular in the 19th century with the advent of American genealogy, these pre-printed lithographs or hand-drawn registers may be the only source of vital information when church records don’t survive, or civil vital registration had not yet begun. This session will look at several examples of family registers in the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections at American Ancestors, discuss what type of information you may find, and provide tips on finding examples at other repositories and archives. We’ll also discuss ways to preserve such items in your personal collection.

The time listed for this webinar is Pacific time.

Genealogy Research in the State Archives of North Carolina - Lauren McCoy‚Äč
As the official repository for county records prior to 1970, and all permanently retained state agency records, the State Archives of North Carolina holds a wealth of information for genealogists who can trace their roots back to North Carolina. This presentation will first focus on an overview of the different types of records we have, and how they may be able to assist you in your personal research, before moving to an explanation of how to make the most out of your background research with our online catalog, DOC. Archival catalogs, digital collections, and genealogy websites can be incredibly helpful – if you understand how to use them efficiently!

Some funeral home records have been donated to private or public archives, historical/genealogical societies, etc.. As private records, these materials are not necessarily available to anyone who wants to see them just because their relative’s name is contained in these records.

Tracing Your Alberta Connections - Dave Obee
Alberta is unique among the 10 Canadian provinces. It was the last of the three Prairie provinces to be opened to homesteading, which meant land in that province was available just as quality homesteading land dried up in the United States. That brought a rush from south of the border, and the American influence is still felt today. There has been another mass influx of people eager to work in the energy industry. Many of the key sources used in researching your ancestors or cousins in Alberta are also unique, so local knowledge is essential. This session identifies those sources for you, and will help you get results in your searches.

The Organizational Power of Timelines - Diane L. Richard
Hit a brick wall? Wondering why your ancestors did what they did? Need to separate several same-named contemporaries? Learn about timelines and how they might help you solve your puzzles. Creating a chronological multi-columned matrix can help you focus on missing gaps, clarify seemingly contradictory information, discover previously invisible relationships, and identify paths to future discoveries. Color-coding or other distinguishing methods can also highlight locale or surname overlaps, related records, and more. These are not the timelines you learned to make in school. This visual representation presents complex information in an easy-to-see format. Timelines are dynamic tools you will never regret making. They are as unique as each project you undertake.

Formidable: American Women and the Fight for Equality, 1920-2020
In Formidable, author Elisabeth Griffith chronicles and integrates the fight by White and Black women to achieve equality and their efforts to advance with sometimes competing causes. Black women wanted the rights enjoyed by Whites, and theirs was not only a women’s movement. White women wanted to be equal to White men. They sought equal legal rights, political power, safeguards for working women and immigrants, and an end to confining social structures. Formidable provides a sweeping, century-long perspective and an expansive cast of change agents. From feminists and civil rights activists to politicians and social justice advocates, from working class women to mothers and homemakers, from radicals and conservatives to those who were offended by feminism, threatened by social change, or convinced of white supremacy, the diversity of the women’s movement mirrors America. Joining the author in conversation will be author Rebecca Boggs Roberts. A book signing will follow the program.

Reading the Gravestones of Early New England
Virtually all genealogists have an appreciation for old graveyards: inscriptions often reveal birth and death dates, family relationships, and other details. Yet the epitaphs inscribed on early New England gravestones—poetic messages expressing contemporary attitudes towards life, death, and eternity—are too often dismissed as sentimental doggerel. Every single epitaph was chosen for a reason of utmost importance—to memorialize the death of a loved one. Knowing the literary context can increase our understanding of these historic epitaphs and even shed light on the lives of the deceased and their family members. Using several examples of early New England gravestones, epitaph expert John Hanson will discuss how to understand the source of inspiration and meaning behind these passages, and what they really say about our ancestors.

Direct You Letters to San Jose:  Following Ancestors' Migration Trails - David W. Jackson
U.S. Migration patterns trended from the east to west coasts as Manifest Destiny played out in our American ancestors’ lives. Did they write letters? Yes, they did. Did they keep a diary? Likely. But, have those documents survived, and if so where might they be located? Follow through historical documents the 100+year Westward Migration of one family who created, saved, and handed down pertinent historical documents pinpointing their migration from Kentucky to Illinois in the early 1830s, chronicled an overland journey to the California Gold Rush 20 years later in 1850, then later emigrated from Illinois to Kansas in the early days of the Civil War. Discover what brought one descendant to Kansas City, Missouri, after World War II. Where’s their next stop? This case study is studded with potential research avenues for any genealogist, anthropologist, archivist, cartographer, or automobile enthusiast.
