09 - 09 February 2022 Foothills Genealogical Society Program Golden, Colorado
Details:

Did the US Post weave together two of the era’s defining projects: western expansion and the growth of state power? Find out from Cameron Blevins, Author and Historian, in his presentation "Paper Trails: the U.S. Post and the Making of the American West”. Between the 1860s and the early 1900s, the western United States underwent a dramatic reorganization of people, land, capital, and resources. As millions of settlers moved into the region, they relied on letters and newspapers, magazines and pamphlets, petitions and money orders to stay connected to the wider world. Learn how the spread of the US Post with 100,000 post offices created a new picture of the federal government in the West.

08 - 08 February 2022 Foothills Genealogical Society Class Golden, Colorado

Late 19th and early 20th century alien passenger manifests often contain cryptic number and letter codes. Most genealogists simply ignore them.

Discover the significant details they can reveal about your ancestor’s immigration and naturalization experience. Receive the handout of a nearly complete glossary of terms, codes, and abbreviations used and see how they apply to examples from actual immigrant passenger lists.

We will discuss how the storage of a record can affect the credibility of its contents. In the second part of this program we will look at case studies in order to examine the more sophisticated issues of source evaluation.
