The Ventura County Genealogical Society presents

Free Family History Presentations

Online with Zoom

Saturday, September 17, 2022, 1:00-4:00 pm PDT

https://venturacogensoc.org/this-month/

 

1:00 pm   Presenter: Chris Paton

 "British & Irish Newspapers" (British Isles SIG)

Records of births, marriages, and deaths provide a fantastic starting point for identifying our ancestors' names and where they lived. Still, in terms of understanding how those ancestors once lived, there is no better resource to plunder than a good newspaper. Over the last two centuries, newspapers have recorded the daily events that have shaped our forebears' lives. In many cases, they have identified specific tales about them and notices and advertisements directly concerning them and their contemporary communities.

 

Originally from Northern Ireland, but with both Scottish and Irish roots, Chris holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogical Studies from the University of Strathclyde and works as a professional genealogist, running Scotland's Greatest Story research service. Chris is, In addition, a published author of several book titles (see https://scottishgenes.blogspot.com/p/books.html), a regular monthly and bi-monthly contributor to several genealogy magazines, and his own daily genealogical news feed, the Scottish GENES blog.

 

                                        Second presentation

Presenter: Karen Fortin

"Creating Google Earth Tours"

Google Earth tours can be fun to share your genealogy with your relatives. Tours can be created to visually illustrate one ancestor's life and travels or the family's migration over generations.

 

Karen Fortin received a bachelor’s degree in History and a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of South Florida. She worked at the Barbara S. Ponce Public Library in Pinellas Park, FL, for 30 years before focusing on genealogical research.

 

Karen's passion for history and research led her to an interest in genealogy. She began volunteering with the Pinellas Genealogy Society in Largo, FL, in 2012 and was the society's president from 2014-2017. Karen started providing genealogy and history presentations in 2016 and has lectured at various genealogical societies, public libraries, and other interested organizations.
