Let’s Continue With 50 More Overlooked Genealogical Resources
Wed, October 2 2024: 18:00 UTC
As with its predecessor webinars, which all focus on 50 “Hot off the Press” and “Overlooked” genealogically relevant websites from around the world, we’ll continue to explore new or recently stumbled across online resources genealogists WILL want to check out. Some of these weren’t even developed with genealogists in mind. With the explosion of online content from individuals, societies, and repositories from many diverse perspectives, it can be overwhelming to identify what websites are genealogically leverageable and which may just bust your “brick wall.” This webinar will help you focus on these off-the-beaten-track online platforms where many “names are named,” hopefully including those of your ancestors.

A History of Calendars for Genealogists
Thu, October 10 2024: 0:00 UTC
Have you ever wondered how a child, whose parents were married on 10 April 1603, could be baptized on 13 March 1603 and yet that child was born after his parents married? Or how someone who died 11 January 1740 had made a will on 28 December 1740? Understanding the complexities and quirks of the Julian and Gregorian Calendars will shed light on these things, and more. This talk will also delve into such things as Regnal Years, Dating by Saints Days, Quaker Dates, The Hebrew Calendar and French Republican Calendar. While researching your family history you might come across any of these forms of dates, and having watched this presentation you will be able to understand them and perhaps clear up a family mystery like the examples above.

Hiding Out in the Open: Discovering LGBT Family History
You may have heard family stories about a relative who was “different” or perhaps you’ve discovered someone who simply “disappeared.” Have you considered the possibility that you could have a gay or lesbian relative in your family tree? LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered) people can be found when researching genealogy, but the search syntax, keywords and strategies are very different. By understanding the basics of “gay history” as well as how LGBT folk lived, worked and socialized, you’ll not only locate these relatives, but realize the importance of preserving their stories.
