Migration — Where Did They Come From, and Why?” by Kelly Southworth.
Kelly’s presentation is based on two seminars that she attended in 2017 at the “Who Do You Think You Are?” Conference in England.  She will also include some of her own research examples and invites you to bring your own examples of successfully tracing your migrant ancestors.  You may also bring your brick wall questions to discuss, but she makes no promises on solutions!

“Finding Google Genealogy Information” by Bill Curtis

Wed., October 17, 7:00 pm. Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway Ave.
Once you have a basic understanding of the process of researching your familyhistory, you will want to know where to find more information. Some of thatinformation is “hidden” on the internet.Google is one of the best tools available to find it, but getting millions of “hits”during a search is not helpful. This session will show ways to “dig out” theinformation that applies to your own specific family.Google can also help you find libraries and archives that contain information not on the internet. The key to using Google successfully for genealogy, is understanding how it works.
