Sat., July 21 @ 2 p.m. - Portland, OR

The Genealogical Forum of Oregon presents:

Voting Records: Genealogy's Best Kept Secret

Presenter: Pam Vestal

Looking for a date of birth or death? The date and court of naturalization? Where your ancestor disappeared to, or where he came from? His political outlook? Even what kind of house he lived in? Voting records may have the answer. These often-overlooked gems can be packed with genealogical information, and you won’t believe what they can tell us about our ancestors!

Pam Vestal entered the field of genealogy after a 21-year career as a professional writer. She does genealogical research for clients, has articles published in the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly, and lectures up and down the West Coast.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC — 2505 SE 11th Ave., #B18, Portland, Oregon — www.GFO.org


Sat., Aug. 18 @ 2 p.m. - Portland, OR

The Genealogical Forum of Oregon presents:

Getting Ready to Check Out: End of Life Planning

Presenter: Leslie Brinkley Lawson, FGC

As genealogists, we love end-of-life records: death certificates, probate/estate paperwork, cemetery records, obituaries, etc. But in our personal lives, maybe we're not so enthusiastic. Learn how to plan for the inevitable, for the sake of your genealogy research and for your loved ones. It doesn't have to be expensive, and it doesn't have to be difficult, let Leslie show you how.

Leslie Brinkley Lawson, FGC is a full-time professional genealogist, specializing in forensic genealogy (missing/unknown heirs, and probate research). She is credentialed by the Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy (CAFG), and is a past president (2010-2015). She is the president of the Oregon Chapter of the Assn. of Professional Genealogists (APG), and is a member of the GFO.
