24 - 24 September 2021 BAGS Monthly Webinar: Early Migration In, Across, and Out of North Carolina by Diane Richard Virtual
Details:

Join BAGS as Diane Richard presents "Early Migration In, Across, and Out of North Carolina"

Many individuals and families migrated into North Carolina, especially in the colonial and pre-Civil War time period. Depending on who was immigrating and when, different locales in North Carolina were hot spots for emigrants from abroad either directly or via Virginia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and beyond. As the state developed, resources were depleted, productive land was becoming more scarce, settlers considered it to be getting too crowded, and we see a pattern of western migration. This migration often did not stop at the state borders. Many families spent a few years, a generation or a few generations in North Carolina, often hopscotching across the state, east to west, before migrating to adjoining states and beyond. Let’s explore these years of migrating North Carolinians — the history of the times and the documentary trail left behind.

30 - 30 July 2021 BAGS Monthly Webinar: "Record As You Go, Cite As You Go, & File As You Go" by Cyndi Ingle Virtual
Details:

Join BAGS as nationally known speaker, Cyndi Ingle, teaches us how to Record As You Go, Cite As You Go, & File As You Go
July 30, 2021 at 7pm (virtual Zoom webinar; registration required)

Genealogists tend to get very excited about new records and sources they come across in their research. So much so that they grab a quick copy, download it to default folders, and move on to the next item without thoroughly exploring the source first. All too often they don't take the time to evaluate the source, to write the citation(s) for the source, or to file it in the correct spot. We have to slow down and take the time to think, to file, and to create notes about the source that make it easy to find that source again if needed. Doing this keeps our research more organized, but also keeps our research brain tidy as well. We are much more productive when we can easily put our hands on what we've found in the past. We will explore different options for accomplishing all of these important steps.

There will be a brief Society meeting prior to the presentation.

Presenter: Moises Garza
“Overview of Ancestry.com and Search Strategies”

Listen to Moises Garza present on the types of records that you can find on ancestry for your Mexican Genealogy research, the various tools and resources that they have to offer, and also learn about research strategies to help you find your ancestors. These research strategies apply to everyone, not just those searching for Mexican ancestors.

My passion for genealogy started in the cotton fields of west Texas. As a migrant worker, I was blessed to work in the fields next to my father, Lauro Garza, who had a sharp memory and told countless stories about his own ancestors. I have been doing genealogy since 1998. Since then I have helped countless others in their own quest to find their ancestors. Today, I continue with this passion by publishing and creating resources to help you in your own search. Mr. Garza has been doing genealogy presentations since 2013 on many different genealogy topics and presented for many genealogy groups/societies in Texas and throughout the United States. He has also been a speaker at many genealogy conferences such as the Texas State Genealogical Conference, The Texas State Hispanic Genealogy and Historical Conference, and the We Are Cousins Virtual Genealogy Conference.

Second presentation: Presenter: Moises Garza

“A Look at Border Crossing Cards” (Mexican American SIG)

In this presentation, Moises talks about the Mexican border crossing records. He will provide an introduction to them, explain who got recorded, the genealogical information that you can find in them, and finally where you can search and find these records yourself.
