Back Beyond the “Good” Census Records

Speaker: Victoria Sullivan, genealogist and AGS Member

Does your research get thin when you have tracked your ancestors beyond the 1850s to where census records include only the name of head of household? What kinds of records can reveal the family information you want? Victoria Sullivan will explore the other records that may exist from those days: tax lists, wills, deeds, church records, lineage society records, and more. You may find that your search is not over.

Sails, Trails, and Rails: How Our Ancestors Traveled

Speaker: Karen Jones, genealogist and AGS member

As we research the lives of our ancestors and learn of their travels into the unknown, we wonder about the ships they sailed in, how they carried their provisions and belongings, life on the trails and canals, the development of roads and railroads. Karen Jones will share in words and pictures the modes of transportation used in different eras of American migrations.

Summer Stories

This month we have our annual storytelling meeting. Since many of us are in families who are not enthusiastic about family history research, we need to take time to listen, encourage, help, rejoice, or sympathize with each other. For this meeting, we circle up in small groups that allow everyone to tell about their recent genealogical adventures. Don’t miss it!

Brick Wall Strategies
Speaker: Marianne Eaton and panel of members

Genealogical brick walls are inevitable—those dead ends where we’re sure there are clues to go further but can’t think of how to find them. What can we do? We need to review old techniques and add new ones to our bag of research tricks. Marianne Eaton, Linda Koch, and other AGS members will share their brick wall breakthroughs. Their experiences may be just the help you need.
