Juneteenth–How Emancipation Came to Texas and How We Celebrate
Wed, June 19 2024: 18:00 UTC
This lecture details the true story of how freedom finally came to Texas more than 2 years after the effective date of the Emancipation Proclamation. Common myths will be replaced with the truth of the events that occurred and the atmosphere of the surrounding Galveston community, including the presence of United States Colored Troops among the Union soldiers who arrived to enforce emancipation for over 300,000 enslaved people of Texas. Finally, it follows the evolution of celebrations of emancipation beginning with spontaneous celebrations that occurred in 1865 on the docks of the Galveston Wharf, to the first documented citywide celebration in Galveston, to today’s recognition of Juneteenth as an important historical event celebrated throughout the nation and even the world.

Kentucky and Virginia Tax Lists – 5 ½ Strategies for Identifying That Elusive Early Southerner
Wed, June 26 2024: 18:00 UTC

Tax lists can be a primary tool for solving difficult research problems and are invaluable when used with other records. Learn how to access original records, to best organize them for study, and to interpret their meaning. The lecture will use case studies to show their use in tracking individuals across time, estimating birth dates and death dates, separating individuals of the same name, determining the identity of other family members, and using them as substitutes for deeds, court records, and estate records in burned counties.

Finding New South Wales birth, marriage and death records: 1788-1900
Wed, August 7 2024: 2:00 UTC
The New South Wales Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages has made it easy for genealogists to find records relating to the births/baptisms, marriages and deaths/burials of those living in NSW during the colonial years. However, sometimes it’s too easy. When genealogists no longer need to undertake manual searches, they can miss entries for their ancestors’ family members or find only abbreviated entries, unaware that more information might be available elsewhere. Moreover, any index is only as good as the transcriber or indexer. Carol Baxter spent decades living and breathing New South Wales colonial records in her roles as project officer for the Australian Biographical and Genealogical Record and as General Editor of its later online incarnation, the Biographical Database of Australia. Her duties included transcribing church records as well as processing the datasets transcribed by volunteers. As such, Carol has an in-depth knowledge of these vital colonial sources.
