Australian Census Substitutes
Sadly, in Australia while censuses were taken, once the statistical data was extracted, most were destroyed. Apart from some early musters, researchers have to use other resources to try and fill in the gaps. These include electoral rolls, directories, gazettes, council rates, land records, civil registration and more. While not…

Documents of Death
Vital registration (death certificates) are just one of the record types that can be used. By looking at the range of documents that can give death information we can put our ancestor’s death and often their life into context.

Education in Australia
Wed, February 2 2022: 1:00 UTC
Tracking the movement of ancestors in Australia can be difficult without available census records. However, there are numerous record alternatives, one of which is school admission registers as children are recorded each year, with details including parent’s names and dates of entry and exit. Industrial or trade schools, universities, religious schools and others can also present information not found elsewhere.

Researching in Colonial New England
Thu, February 10 2022: 1:00 UTC
Researching ancestors who lived in colonial New England can be challenging. This webinar begins by tracing settlement patterns, setting the stage for understanding key records and where to find them. For the 17th century, many unique published resources exist to help the family researcher. During the colonial years, several conflicts such as King Philip’s War and the Seven Years War affected settlement and thus the surviving records. The 18th century culminated in the Revolutionary War, but also saw the continued growth of settlement and ultimately resources for the family historian.

Genealogical Gold in British Columbia
Fri, February 18 2022: 19:00 UTC
The land now known as British Columbia has been inhabited for many centuries, but most genealogical records started after the 1858 Gold Rush, which prompted many arrivals from California.

This session will enable researchers to make the most of those sources, and build a better understanding of your family’s connections to British Columbia.

‘Hidden Treasures’: Discovering Local Sources in Your Irish Research
Wed, March 9 2022: 19:00 UTC
When many start their Irish family history research they often head straight for the larger national repositories and their collections. Census records and parish registers are a great starting point for our research but don’t always help you in breaking through those brick walls. What many overlook when researching their Irish family history is the treasure trove of local repositories and the records they contain. These include street directories, cemetery registers, maps, school rolls, workhouse records and even personal family archives. The majority of Irish counties on both sides of the border have their own dedicated county library and archive which are run by local councils. This webinar will examine some of the records contained in local repositories and how best to use them for genealogical research.
