March 23, 2019 - Springfield, Oregon

Oregon Genealogical Society Spring Seminar

"So You Found Them in the Census: That's Only the Start!"
When you find someone in the census, you probably write down some (maybe all?) of the information from the page, but have you thought of how that information can be clues to lead you further in your research? In this class we'll follow some of the many directions the census can take you.

"Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust: What's Buried in Cemetery Records"
This class will focus on identifying the cemeteries in which your family members are buried and then on how to obtain and use their records to further your research.

"Immigration and Naturalization Research"
When researching an immigrant ancestor, finding information here in the U.S. is the necessary first step (and the more, the better!). This class identifies resources and provides tools and strategies to help you make the leap to the “old country” as accurately as possible.

Speaker Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist who is passionate about her work. She specializes in Jewish, black, dual citizenship, and newspaper research. Her Web site is ancestraldiscoveries.com.

The seminar will be held at the Northwood Christian Church, 2425 Harvest Lane, Springfield, OR 97477.
