Kansas Settlers - Pioneers Settling Prior to 1900


The settling of Kansas is a tale woven with Indian settlements, railroad grants, the Homestead Act, Pre-emption, and agricultural school grants. With this many players and conflicting interests, settlers – and genealogists – have their work cut out to make sense of the process. This class unwraps the fascinating story and records left behind.

Presenter: Beth Foulk

Beth Foulk has turned a lifetime genealogy passion into an opportunity to share what she’s learned with genealogists across the country.
She has documented her Civil War, War of 1812, and Revolutionary War ancestors.  She has mapped the migration of her Kansas and Missouri pioneers.  And researched the arrival of her many Massachusetts Colonial settlers.  Each ancestor and each story quickly become a “teaching moment” for her classes.

“The only thing more fun than a genealogy find, is sharing what I’ve learned to help other genealogists.”

Foulk has been “spreading the genealogy gospel” since 2008 when she first taught as a volunteer at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri.
