My 20 Year Mystery:  Finding Family Origins with Y-DNA - Shellie A. Morehead, PhD, CG
Beginner genealogists often research their surname origins first, and get stuck at a certain point. The skills needed to surmount these early brick walls come in time, with study and practice, and the increasing availability of DNA and online resources. In this webinar, Shellee describes her brick wall ancestor, Samuel Morehead, of Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, and the techniques that she used to identify his parentage and place of origin. Sticky problems like this require a variety of approaches including Y-DNA analysis, the FAN club, tax, land and court records, censuses, historical analysis and mapping techniques, to name a few. She will detail the clues acquired from all of these methods as she developed an hypothesis to satisfy the Genealogical Proof Standard.

Migration Patterns of Germans within America - Sharon Cooke MacInnes, CG, PhD
We’ll explore how historical events channeled Germans into certain areas and how chain migration drew allied families together. Many migrated from NY/MD/PA down the Shenandoah Valley into VA, NC and SC. Accessible rivers and railroads led to the establishment of the German Triangle between Cincinnati, Milwaukee and St. Louis. The National Road and German-language advertisements channeled them to Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin and points west. The 1848 Revolution led them to the Texas German Belt. Knowing where your ancestors settled in the mid-1800s can often lead you backwards by considering the migration routes of other Germans, particularly allied families.
