Australia Census Substitutes - Helen V. Smith 
Sadly, in Australia while censuses were taken, once the statistical data was extracted, most were destroyed. Apart from some early musters, researchers have to use other resources to try and fill in the gaps. These include electoral rolls, directories, gazettes, council rates, land records, civil registration and more. While not a perfect substitute these resources do help us put people in time and place.

How to Connect with Your Pilgrim Ancestors to Join the Mayflower Society
- Kate Eakman
If you know or suspect you are descended from one of the original Pilgrims who arrived in Massachusetts on 9 November 1620 there is still time to join the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (more commonly known as the Mayflower Society) before the November 2020 celebration of the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower. Proving your connection to a Mayflower passenger can be challenging. Tracing your ancestry back four hundred years means researching 20 or more generations to provide the necessary documentation to verify the birth, marriage, and death of each generation. This presentation will provide steps to assist you in your quest to become a member of the Mayflower Society. In addition, we will discuss how you can use DNA to become a member of the Mayflower Society.

Was Grandma a Gun Moll? - Phil Hysell

The Story of the Sportsmen’s Bar Stickup and Its Consequences
 A few years ago I happened across an old, brief newspaper article that covered the robbery of a bar in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The only reason it grabbed my attention was that one of the robbers was a Mrs. Catherine Hysell. All the other gang members had their ages mentioned. Catherine’s wasn’t. All were from Minneapolis – except for Catherine. She was from a place called Deer River. I scanned all my references on the family, but found none from Deer River. I put the article aside and forgot about it. Then came the “Pandemic Quarantine” and I had some free time on my hands to investigate. This is the story behind that article.

Phil Hysell is a WV native and a graduate of Marshall University in Huntington, WV. He earned a B.S. Degree in chemistry and did graduate work at the University of Louisville. Phil was a laboratory manager for Celanese Corporation in Louisville and for Rhodia in Cranbury, NJ. He is editor of the Hisle-Hysell Genealogy newsletter, a member of the SAR, Technical Advisor and a 2010 past president of the Louisville Genealogical Society. Phil has published articles in various literary, genealogical and scientific journals.

Deeds Not Words:  Finding Your Merchant Marine Ancestors
- Michael L. Strauss, AG
The Merchant Marines have always played a pivotal and important role in American history. Without their efforts and sacrifice the wars of the twentieth century could have turned out very differently. A series of acts passed by Congress in 1916, 1920, and 1936 would officially organize the Merchant Marines into a well-trained and disciplined organization set about to answer the call to action during World War II. Many genealogically valuable records can be searched to find your merchant mariner ancestors.

Jewish Immigrants in the American Antiques Trade - Briann Greenfield & Erica Lome

In the early twentieth century, Jewish cabinetmakers from Eastern Europe played a pivotal role in the emerging market for antiques and their reproductions. In this talk, Briann Greenfield and Erica Lome explore the lives and careers of two immigrants, Israel Sack and Nathan Margolis, who trained together in Lithuania and became noted authorities on Early American furniture. Their clients included some of the most famous collectors of their era, such as Henry Francis du Pont, J.P. Morgan, and Luke Vincent Lockwood.

As an antique dealer and cabinetmaker respectively, Sack and Margolis exemplified a larger tradition whereby America’s oldest families depended on Jewish immigrant labor to preserve and reproduce their colonial heritage. This talk recovers their fascinating legacy and demonstrates their lasting influence on American decorative arts.

Separating and Merging the Identities of Same-Named Men - Shannon Green, CG
Can the same man die twice? Two different probates years apart appear to be for different men, but they are not. Research into probate records revealed more men by the same name. Each man’s identity needed to be developed to distinguish them from each other. This case study uses probate records, deeds, census records, newspapers, tax rolls, town records, newspapers, neighborhoods, and handwriting analysis to distinguish these men. Learn ways to distinguish same-named men as well as warnings of how identities can be incorrectly conflated.
