Moravian Trails and Records
The Moravians in the 1700s not only settled Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, but their mission work took them to other areas to work with Native Americans. Moravian records include Community Diaries which were required to be kept by each settlement. They were a way for them to record not only ecclesiastical events but other events that affected their settlement such as their interactions with native populations and slaves as they went about doing their missionary work. The German heritage of the Moravians shows in the details of naming visitors (along with any aliases) and relationships among the individuals mentioned. The Moravian records are truly a treasure-trove for anyone whose ancestors were in the same vicinity or time.

Beginning Hungarian Genealogy
The search for Hungarian roots, though often made complex by various language and border changes, can be a greatly rewarding experience. The land has long been a crossroads, and Hungarian histories and records of genealogical interest are intertwined with neighboring countries and the empires and occupiers that ruled the area over the centuries. Lisa Toth Salinas, author of the Hungarian Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™, presents an overview of the history and geography of modern day Hungary and its former lands, the types and whereabouts of available records, an introduction to the many resources available, and research strategies to aid you in a search for your Magyar roots.

One Family, Many Connections: Using the FAN club in one Australian locality
Family historians know only too well the importance of researching the family/friends, neighbours and associates (the FAN club) of direct line ancestors. Any information we find does not become truly valuable until placed into a community or cluster or network context. Harvesting the clues in the FAN club gives us the potential to further advance our research as well as provide pointers to other records or fragments. So, what genealogical details would be found if the FAN principle was applied to one family in a locality? This presentation will show how one such network or cluster evolved in the Hunter Valley region; one which was to be hugely influential in the growth years of the New South Wales colony and in the development of Australia as a nation.

Cluster Research: Using Groups of People to Find Your People

Those people included not just family members but friends, neighbors, employers and fellow employees, fellow churchgoers, and business associates. Genealogists often refers to this group with the…
