Cobb County Genealogical Society presents: Using Maps in Genealogical Research with Melinda Kashuba, PhD.

Join us at our virtual monthly meeting to learn how maps help us identify where a place is located. For genealogists, there are many other things maps can help us achieve: visualize past environments, document boundary changes, show the locations of cemeteries, churches, and schools, suggest migration routes, and assist us in critically analyzing records. A variety of maps that are helpful in genealogical research will be discussed as well as methods to locate them.

11 - 11 January 2023 FhGS program: Researching the History of Your Home, presented by Sara Dawson, Professional Genealogist Golden, Colorado
Details:

Every home has a story to tell. Who lived there before you? How did your home's physical structure evolve? What is its history? Does it have a sordid past? Your neighborhood may hold key insights into your home's history.

Researching homes is similar to researching ancestors---on steroids---according to Sara. She researches older homes to discover the historical significance of the people, place, architecture, and events. Owner of Descent Detective, she assists homeowners and associations applying for local, state, or national historic designations.

Guests are welcome for this free presentation at Applewood Valley United Methodist Church, 2035 Ellis St., Golden, CO. There is ample parking and accessible entrance. Register at http://www.foothillsgenealogy.org for the ZOOM link. Donations welcome.

For 42 years, Foothills Genealogical Society has supported genealogical research with educational programs, classes and field trips and by preserving and publishing historical records from Clear Creek, Gilpin, Jefferson and Park counties.

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
Details:

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.
