Genealogy and the Little Ice Age
As genealogists we seek information about our ancestors from as far back in time as possible. That being said, not all researchers may be familiar with the term, but some of the most important records we find were created during the time of the Little Ice Age.

Hiding Out in the Open: Discovering LGBT Family History
Fri, June 7 2024: 18:00 UTC
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.

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.

French Emigrants: They Were Not All Huguenots, or Nobles, or from Alsace-Lorraine
Tue, April 16 2024: 16:00 UTC
One of the great difficulties for people researching their French immigrant ancestors’ roots is that so little is known outside of France about when and why the French left their country. This dearth of knowledge has led many family historians of the 19th century to presume Huguenot, noble émigré or Alsace-Lorraine ancestry for any ancestor with a French name. The supposition became a family legend that then became a research frustration as more recent family historians attempt to prove what was never more than a misguided supposition. This webinar looks at the many waves of French migration, as well as the three mentioned in the title, from the 17th to the 20th centuries. The historical reasons for when, why and to where they emigrated will provide the key points to bear in mind when conducting research. The bibliography, in English and French, contains not only books and articles concerning French emigration but a list of websites to aid the researcher.

Comparing Plats of Land With Deeds and Grants

Land Plats of an ancestor’s land will likely include his surrounding neighbors. With a closer examination, we might gain an understanding of their lives and place them with their community and local events.
