This overview discusses key record collections for tracing African American ancestry, challenges and strategies for working with enslaved ancestors, and how DNA testing can help connect to African origins.
Are you new to DNA testing, just curious, or still on the fence? Perhaps you tested a while ago but need a refresher? Join me in beautiful Yorba Linda for the first Monday evening of the next two months.
The January launch of my new Hispanic SIG for VGA was moved from January to February. You still have time to register and join us!
Like many cultures, Hispanic countries (we’re including Spain) have traditional naming conventions. Understanding these well will make you much more successful when researching and documenting your ancestors.
Our goal is that this SIG will help you advance your Hispanic research from the comfort and convenience of your home or wherever you have an internet connection. Join us on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pacific).
The Ohio Genealogical Society has opened up registration for its 2019 Conference in Mason, Ohio this coming May. I am giving two traditional one-hour lectures, as well as teaching a two-hour workshop that will allow us to go more in-depth with those particular collections.
