CJGC Monthly meeting

August 8, 2017 – Françoise Lampe - “Genealogy in France and in the French Province of Quebec". The focus is on sharing my research experience and identifying resources available on line to locate French and French Canadian ancestors.
Born and raised in the Champagne region of France, Françoise Lampe has researched her ancestors dating back to the early 1600's. She has shared her experience with several genealogy clubs with presentations focusing on resources available online to locate French and French Canadian ancestors. Her research has taken her to the French National Archives in Paris and to her region departmental archives.
She participates in the genealogy programs at Founders Hall in Ridgefield, CT and is a member of the Genealogy Club of Newtown, CT. She is also an active member of a volunteer genealogy association of the Champagne region in France which photographs, indexes and digitizes vital records as well as census and military records and makes them available online free of charge. She regularly attends the meetings of this association during travel to France.
In addition to researching her own French roots, Françoise has done extensive research on her husband's German ancestors. She has shared that experience and lectured on researching both German and American online resources and on techniques to use in overcoming some of the unique challenges of German genealogy.

November 14, 2017 – Rich Venezia - "Italian Americans: Find Your Roots in the Old Country”

Rich Venezia started researching his family history after his maternal grandmother’s death, having come across an incomplete family tree she’d begun. His quest has taken him abroad to Italy, Wales, England, and Ireland, as well as various places in the US in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Washington, D.C., and Utah. Since Rich began accepting clients as a professional genealogist, he has helped many others find their roots in Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Scotland, St. Kitts, Sint Eustatius, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and right here in the USA. He is a member of local and national genealogical organizations, and has attended a number of conferences and institutes to continue his education as a professional. He received his Certificate in Genealogical Research from The Boston University Center for Professional Education in May 2015 and serves as Vice President of the North Hills Genealogists, Pittsburgh.
Rich was thrilled to be selected as a member of the research team for Seasons 2 and 3 of PBS' Genealogy Roadshow.

CJGC Monthly meeting

March 13, 2018 – Cathy Ivins – “Genetic Genealogy: DNA for Newbies, Wannabes and Crackerjacks!”

The popularity of DNA analysis flourishes with witty television promotion, and affordable at-home kits. But the value to genealogists is more than just prediction of ethnicity. It can boost your family tree research, break through a brick wall, and help find biological families. It can confirm your findings obtained through traditional genealogy research, and even provide your personal health information. Our speaker will take us step by step in determining the right test and testing company for our needs, decoding the mysterious results, using third-party tools, and creating skeleton trees to link to our DNA as “cousin bait.”
Whether you are a NEWBIE and need help understanding your results and what to do with them, a WANNABE curious what DNA can do for you, or a CRACKERJACK that can share your knowledge and experience during the program, we hope to see you on March 13th.

Speaker: Cathy Ivins, Genetic Genealogist
Cathy Ivins is a charter member of BCGS as well as its Director of Publicity for the last three years. An Instructional Assistant for the Bristol Township School District by day, she has been researching her family history for over 12 years. Cathy completed the Practical Genetic Genealogy course at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh, taught by CeCe Moore and Blaine Bettinger, as well as Fundamentals of Forensic Genealogy, taught by Michael Ramage and other experts in the field. Cathy has benefited tremendously from DNA testing and hopes to encourage others to “give a spit!”
