The Geography of American Genealogy  (Hybrid Event)
Thursday, Feb. 9th
9:00 P.M. Central

Zoom Presentation by ROOT CELLAR, Sacramento Genealogical Society

Many of our ancestors were part of groups that left homelands at particular times and moved together to specific regions in America. For example, people left Ireland during the potato famine and left Germany during political upheavels. These migrations and others are the geography of genealogy. Your ancestors are part of this geography. Registration: https://www.rootcellar.org/eventListings.php?nm=63

Introduction to Forensic Genealogy
Monday, March 20th
6:00 P.M. Central

With Katharine O’Connell
Presented by North Hills Genealogists.

Forensic Genealogists do family research for legal reasons. Sometimes that involves DNA, but most often relies on firm documentary evidence. Dr. O’Connell will discuss how she uses her people locating skills as a forensic genealogist and tell you about the field. You’ll come away with new understanding for how genealogy can be used in a legal setting and go over a sample case she worked on, which involved an understanding of laws in 12 states and over 200 documents as evidence. Using a combination of wills, newspapers, baptismal records, and censuses, she provided a court-level report proving who was the current next of kin of a will from 1906. She will show you how you can use a similar combination of records in your own research. For details and registration see: northhillsgenealogists.org.
