**Learning without $pending: Getting a Free Genealogical Education Presented by Beth Benko

Genealogy can be a very expensive pursuit and acquiring the knowledge to research well can add to the costs significantly. Seminars, institutes, conferences, and distance learning courses offer excellent learning experiences – but at a price.

Explore websites, wikis, webinars and more in this presentation.  Live demonstrations are included (subject to the availability of high-speed Internet).

** Finding Billy the Kid in My Family Tree**

Presenter: Paul Matthew Marque

Learn how confirming his family lore led to grandma and Billy the Kid. Marquez confirmed the friendship between his Great-great-grandmother Celsa Gutierrez and William H. Bonney, aka Billy the Kid, New Mexico's most notorious outlaw of the 19th century.
While researching his family's ancestral path from New Mexico to Denver, Marquez confirmed lore in his Grandmother's Gutierrez family: a relationship between the Marquez' family and the outlaw, plus a kinship to the Sheriff who hunted and killed the outlaw.
His discovery has been documented in books and film with his published documents providing new information. Marquez, whose family has been in Colorado for more than 130 years, sits on the board of the Wild West History Association which is dedicated to research and preservation of history and lore of the American West.
