Why, When, Where, How, and Who: Hiring a Professional to Help with your Research
Sunday, January 8, 2023
Why, When, Where, How, and Who: Hiring a Professional to Help with your Research
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada) via Zoom
   Sometimes we just can't do it ourselves -- we need help to break through brick walls, find elusive records, or determine our next research steps. Professional genealogists can help with all that and more: helping organize your genealogy, writing or editing your family stories, or interpreting your DNA results. Learn why, when, and where you might need a professional, how to find one, and how to determine if that person is the right pro for you.
   Speaker Annette Burke Lyttle owns Heritage Detective, LLC, providing professional genealogical services in research, education, and writing. She speaks on a variety of genealogical topics at the national, state, and local levels and loves helping people uncover and share their family stories. She is coordinator of the Fall Virtual Intermediate Foundations course for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. Annette leads the Best Practices Study Groups for a number of organizations, providing in-depth education on the genealogical research process in an interactive setting. She is president of the Association of Professional Genealogists and editor of The Florida Genealogist.

Probate Documentation: Don’t Overlook Valuable Information on Your Ancestors!
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada) via Zoom

   Probate documentation can be a goldmine of information on a decedent and his family. However, have you searched for your ancestor in a neighbor’s estate file? Examples from Florida and elsewhere in 18th and 19th centuries will demonstrate what information can be gleaned on the decedent and neighbors involved during the probate process. Get inspired to explore probate records with a new perspective.

   Speaker Pam Ricciardi Paschke has been researching for over forty years. She speaks at national, regional, and local levels on DNA, Italian research, and other genealogical topics. She is the author of The South Precinct of Dutchess County New York 1740-1790 and many genealogical articles, and serves as administrator for five FTDNA projects. Pam is the current treasurer of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

Bringing Your Family History to Life Through Social History
Sunday, November 5, 2023
Bringing Your Family History to Life Through Social History
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada)

   History informs genealogy. It is the means to determine “the meat on the bones,” the authentic context of the past lives that genealogists strive to reconstruct. Many genealogists experience that exciting connection when they find famous, well-documented events and individuals in their family lines. Still more genealogists hope to make such famous “finds” and are frustrated that they do not.  Yet the field of history most applicable to genealogy and vice versa is social history, ordinary people’s everyday lives, culturally predictable in their family and social group contexts.

   Using social history, historical resources, with family data and primary sources, you can predict and explain ancestors’ life choices, work and social lives, migration patterns, politics and religion, marriage and child naming or raising customs, and even the most private aspects of life. Learning historians’ skills and resources, how best to find and approach them, opens a new world to the genealogist. Family history can seem more complete and fulfilling. Creating projects to preserve recollections, documents, and artifacts with historical methods makes their preservation in permanent public collections more likely. You will have “brought your family history to life.”

   Katherine Scott Sturdevant is the senior Professor of History at Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. She has BA and MA degrees in History from San Francisco State University and PhD candidacy from UC Santa Barbara. Over her 30-year career she has taught a wide variety of subjects in history (U.S., Colorado, Pikes peak regional, environmental, women's, West, Southwest, Native American, Pikes Peak Regional), as well as public speaking, and writing. Relevant to this presentation, she has also taught family history classes.  Two of her many publications, Bringing Your Family History to Life through Social History (Betterway Books, 2000) and Organizing and Preserving Your Heirloom Documents (Betterway, 2002) reflect her emphasis on applying historical context, sources, and methods to family history research, organization, preservation, and writing. An entertaining speaker, she has presented for many genealogical and historical organizations as well as many classes and workshops on her family history approach.
