Topics Join us for the following lectures, all designed to aid your research:
  • Journey into Genealogy

An overview of how a family historian works. Slides and discussion will motivate beginners, revitalize the experienced, and interest newcomers who are just considering genealogy.

  • Hooked on Courthouses

After the on-line goodies, what next? A visit! Practical techniques to reduce courthouse anxiety, design a work plan, and prioritize needs for on-site research.  The interesting examples include some unusual and seldom-used records.  This lecture concentrates on courthouses of the Midwest.

  • Circumventing Blocked Lines

Seven sure-fire search strategies for lines you stopped searching.

  • From Note to Narrative

A simple and sensible approach to sharing your research discoveries in a format the rest of the family will enjoy.  As a bonus: these narratives will eventually combine to create that Family History you keep promising to write!
