The old phrase “The cobbler’s children always have the worse shoes,” rings true for genealogists when it comes to documenting our own lives. With a constant emphasis on preserving the memories of our ancestors, are we “walking the walk” when it comes to our own lives? There has never been a better time for genealogists and family historians to embrace a new storytelling format: lifestreaming. From online diary apps to narrative “wearable” cameras, the technology now available to capture one’s life is amazing. With new ways to tell our own stories, do you have a plan to leave your own legacy?

New York is a notoriously challenging state to find birth, death and marriage records. Navigating New York City and State governmental vital records requires a "quick sheet" to make sure you have looked in every possible place to find the indexes and the records. Civil registration jurisdictions need to be clearly understood and considered, plus the key dates for laws and regulations that give context to what was actually collected, and when. And importantly, learn what is accessible today and how to order records. We'll also explore examples for using the records.

Part Number: WXTRANRECS_

Price: $9.95
The Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands are full of data reflecting newly freed slaves and their adapting to life after the Civil War. Among the lesser known records are those reflecting the movement of families in the years between 1865 – 1872. Some needed assistance in going back to communities were they were born, others were seeking a chance to begin new lives elsewhere. The records of various field offices vary in how the movement of former slaves were handled and there was no particular pattern in how they were documented. But transportation records reflect amazing data about the first voluntary migration of people of color during those post-Civil War years. This workshop will illustrate the content of these records, and how to locate them in the various Bureau field offices throughout the South.

Part Number: WXCRIMRECS_

Price: $9.95
In this presentation, Ron demonstrates how to research black sheep ancestors, those relatives who might be difficult to research for any one of a number of different reasons. Ron talks about using ‘standard’ genealogical records (census, vital records, city directories, etc., but also talks about other specific records available only for those who broke the law or came close to doing so, e.g. prison records. Specific recommendations will be given regarding the methodology of researching such characters.

Part Number: WXLANDMAPS_

Price: $9.95
Land ownership maps in this country are generally focused on the county level. Produced largely in the nineteenth-century in single sheet or atlas format, they were sold by subscription and also developed to commemorate events such as the centennial of the American Revolution. Though advances in printing such as lithography increased availability, maps were still expensive. Consequently, they likely will be found in more affluent areas. Property owners can also be found on military maps and other government published maps. Land ownership and residence can often be determined by correlating city directories with fire insurance maps.

Part Number: WXNFTDNA_

Price: $9.95
Geoff is ready to close the case of the parentage of Nathan Brown. Traditional genealogy research has built a solid case, and now he wants to solidify the findings by adding DNA to the evidence. He recently located one of Nathan’s living, male, Brown-surnamed descendants who agreed to take the test - a YDNA test from FamilyTreeDNA.com. The results are in, and he is hoping that the DNA supports his theory. Is Jeremiah Brown really Nathan’s father or is it time to look up a different tree?

On hand to guide, interpret and explain what Geoff discovers will be DNA expert, webinar presenter, and yourDNAguide.com’s Diahan Southard. The result will be a live and unscripted session giving DNA neophyte researchers (like Geoff) a first-hand look at what to expect from a YDNA test.

Part Number: WXAFAMNEB_

Price: $9.95
After the Civil War, blacks began searching for a new life, new freedom which involved the quest for land or the security of employment. The passing of the Homestead Act in 1862 did not restrict the acquisition of land to only the white race. There was an opportunity for blacks from Canada, the east coast, the states along the Ohio River and the deep South to begin a new life. Nebraska was a promising area for new land owners. With the expansion of the west and more settlements, there was a need for military protection, thus many blacks became Buffalo Soldiers, eventually finding themselves at Fort Robinson or Fort Niobrara in Nebraska. As the railroad forged through Nebraska, it brought new settlements as well as employment. Blacks often worked in positions, such as porters, which brought pride and stability to their families. In order to research the lineages of the African-Americans who came to Nebraska, researchers need to use traditional methods of research, and also rely on a certain amount of family information and stories that interweave with the direct evidence found in documents. The research is unusual because of name changes, lack of knowledge of ages or places of birth, along with the innate problems of being a slave. This webinar explores the areas settled by blacks before and after their arrival in Nebraska, the time periods, why they came to Nebraska, their connections and influences. Emphasis will be placed on the types of records that are useful in this type of research and are applicable to other areas besides Nebraska.

Griffith's Valuation is the best-known 19th-century Irish census substitute. But the published Valuation itself is only the tip of the iceberg. Before publication, a huge surveying operation produced mountains of documents, most now available online, and after publication revisions were produced continually up to the 1980s, providing an excellent source of information on possible living relatives. The talk details the creation of the records, their locations and access, online and offline.
