14 - 14 December 2022 Matt Weismantel – “ 'Are You My Mother?' A New Jersey Adoptee’s Perspective on Search and Reunion" - GSNJ 2022 Genealogy Webinar Series Webinar

8 PM Eastern Standard or Daylight Savings time  - Free and Open to the Public (GSNJ Members have access to the recording for a limited time).

There is always a great deal to unpack in any closed adoption search and reunion effort, and it is not easy to assess how someone will handle their discoveries. No matter the approach, it is rarely an antiseptic process— and can be further complicated by the rose-colored glasses of expectation. DNA advances have sped things up, leaving precious little time to internalize new information before reunion commences. By examining a personal case history, we will consider the implications of how search and reunion have transitioned from private investigator cases into a typical genealogical exercise along with significant changes in New Jersey law. How have these changes influenced the life experiences of adoption triad members, both those who want or do not want to search? The presentation will also provide a view on the long-term progression of reunion.

16 - 16 November 2022 Mary K. Risseeuw – "19th & 20th Century Dutch Migration Patterns" - GSNJ 2022 Genealogy Webinar Series Webinar

8 PM Eastern Standard or Daylight Savings time  - Free and Open to the Public (GSNJ Members have access to the recording for a limited time).

Learn to recognize the economic and personal pushes that influenced the migration of Dutch immigrants from New York to Washington. Tracing small migrations within a state and larger western migrations helps to understand the connection to the original immigrant communities and how the vast distances between families affected them.

10 - 10 November 2022 Fox Valley Genealogical Society Presents They Lived Where? Tips for Researching Locations by Laura Kovarik Naperville, IL

Once you have identified the location for a family event, you have an opening to create a rich, detailed life portrait for your ancestor. Location research allows genealogists to learn the details surrounding their family, helping to give context and understanding to their lives. We will take a look at location research across time, learning what to do when you recognize the place and especially when you don’t!

Laura, a former FVGS President, has been involved in genealogy for more than 20 years. Laura was an Illinois State Genealogical Society President and has been a member of the ISGS Governing Board for many years. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, with degrees focused on historic preservation and land use/environmental planning. Laura worked for 13 years as a math tutor for grades 1-9. Areas of genealogical research include Norway, Canada, France, Bohemia and Sweden. Part of Laura's family was in Chicago prior to the fire in 1871. Her Illinois research focuses on Cook, Kane, McHenry, and Kankakee counties.

22 - 22 October 2022 CDGS - "Up the Hudson: Tracing Nineteenth and Early Twentieth-Century Ancestors from NYC to Canada on the Champlain and Erie Canals" Zoom

The creation of the NYS Canal system in 1825 made many things possible--from moving people and cargo, to transporting language, religion, and ideas. Beyond the census, finding ancestors who did business alongside the canals, owned boats, or worked as laborers may seem like a challenging task. Find out how to trace their most likely routes and pathways from Albany to Buffalo, from New York City, up the Hudson River, the Champlain Canal to Canada, and how the canal families traveled, and where they were likely to stop en route to Buffalo. Learn about the types of records you should look at, where to find the records, and how to analyze them (from 1817 to 1918.)

Pamela Vittorio is a professional historian and genealogist. She manages the "Finding Their Routes - Family History & Genealogy" Facebook page, does research for a variety of clients, and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
