The search for Italian-American and Italian relatives, begins with yourself and with census data, as it does for families of any ethnicity. Both Connecticut and Italian vital records are stored in the town where the event took place. This program begins with what for many is the greatest challenge, finding the town or towns.

A combination of DNA in a FamilyTree DNA Surname project and traditional genealogical research was used to identify the descendants of Richard William Daniels, who married seven times and had at least thirteen children. Discover how similar strategies might help break down brick walls in your research.

Keith Wilson has been researching genealogy for more than forty years and DNA since 2008. He manages more than twenty DNA kits of family members at FamilyTree DNA and is the Project Manager of the John Daniels of New London CT project. Keith has hosted annual gatherings of Daniels cousins since 2014 in Old Lyme and has written several articles on the Daniels family for the Connecticut Nutmegger.

“Hidden Discoveries about Your Civil War Kin” with Clay Feeter, of Find Your Civil War Ancestor

"Your Civil War ancestors' stories are always much deeper than the few lines about them that you might—or might not!—find in your family genealogy book," says researcher Clay Feeter, who will give an informative talk and visual presentation on the subject.

Even if all your genealogy book says is "Killed in the War of the Rebellion," you will learn how to use those sometimes dry and hard-to-understand facts to bring your soldier-ancestor’s story to life.

Learn about the challenges and hardships of the Civil War. Not only did our Civil War soldier-ancestors suffer during that great conflict, but their families at home had it just as hard … running the farm and taking care of the kids, canning food or making socks to send to the boys on the front line.

Before attending the talk, you will want to research your family history. Most Civil War-age men were born between1815-1847. Try to find out where they fought, marched, were wounded, captured, and even where they died. Many of our kin may have fought at the same famous battles, or maybe even side by side in the same regiment! This is all valuable information to pass on to the next generations, so bring a pen and notepad.

Free to Godfrey Premium members. $10 for all others. Open to the general public. Attendees will have time after the presentation to do research at the library.
