Sept 22, 2019 - Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland - Pikesville, MD

Speaker: Stephen Morse
Title: “One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools”
Date and Time: Sunday, September 22, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd, Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, September 22, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, when Stephen P. Morse presents our next program: “One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools.”

The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterward, it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web-based tools divided into 16 separate categories, ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on eBay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.

Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website, for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society, first-ever Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists, and two awards that he cannot pronounce from Polish genealogical societies.

In his other life, Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in electrical engineering. He has held various research, development, and teaching positions, authored numerous technical papers, written four textbooks, and holds four patents. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 (the granddaddy of today's Pentium processor), which sparked the PC revolution nearly 40 years ago.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Please check our web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.

The focus largely is on participants who are in Graves Family Association (GFA) genealogies ( http://www.gravesfa.org/charts.php )connected to this touring area of Kentucky—#62, 94, 96, 111, 174, 261, 602, 603, 606 and 630 as well as #46, 77, 96, 111, 118, 150, 152, 215, 220, 270, and 511 since Family Tree DNA testing in Houston indicates that these “Graves family tree branches” have shared common “recent” ancestors dating back to the 1700s in Virginia and Maryland. All Graves descendants and gen #s welcome - Kentucky is a great place for everyone to visit!

This gathering follows ones held in 2015, 2016, 2017 in Harrisonburg-Staunton VA, Bardstown KY (4 counties), and Williamsburg-Jamestown VA respectively.
