Documentation & Citation:

Keep Calm and Cite Your Sources!

Presented by Alice Hoyt Veen, Certified Genealogist


Source documentation and citations are important components of every successful family history project. Citing sources creates a permanent “breadcrumb trail” that others can follow and enhances the credibility of research findings. It takes self-discipline and thoughtfulness, but well-documented research stands the test of time. This presentation begins with the basics, then digs deeper into evolving standards for documenting 21st-century sources. Discussion includes practical examples and step-by-step practice.

Alice Hoyt Veen is a Board-certified genealogist, professional researcher, writer, and genealogical educator. She believes family history success lies in truly understanding the records our ancestors created. Alice founded Prairie Roots Research in 2010 with the mission of fostering a deeper understanding of the past by researching and reconstructing forgotten lives. Alice has spoken for national, regional, and state conferences, and for numerous local organizations. She is a past trustee for the BCG Education Fund, a charitable trust advancing the educational aims of the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

Saturday, March 18, 2023, 1:00-4:00 pm PST


Presenter: Peggy Lauritzen

“Migration Trails Across America”

America has been a nation on the move since the first landings in the colonies.  From buffalo traces and Native American trails to rivers and canals, Americans kept pushing “west.” This presentation concentrates on the most common means of travel in the New World.  Migrations trails and patterns will be discussed, as well as the many rivers and canals interconnecting us as a nation.  A case study will be demonstrated showing a “lost” ancestor.”


Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, was involved in genealogy before birth.  The daughter of avid genealogists was spending time in courthouses and cemeteries while other children were playing on swings and going to the beach.  However, the love of her family’s history has never left her. Peggy is an instructor at Ancestry Academy and Family Tree University, served as an Ambassador for RootsTech 2016-2017, and was honored as a 2018 Fellow of the Ohio Genealogical Society.

08 - 08 March 2023 Organizing your Genealogy and Family Tree Online, presented by AGS Member Victoria Sullivan Albuquerque, New Mexico

Many of us spend more of our genealogy time online than in the library these days. We have online trees and online sources. Just in case, we want to have offline backups, too. Genealogy software can help. So can a good backup plan. As Dick Eastman told us a few years ago, “Lots of Online (and offline) Copies Keep Stuff Safe”.

This event is currently scheduled as a HYBRID EVENT. Come join us, either in person at the Albuquerque Main Library, Genealogy Center on the 2nd floor. See link for registration information.

Many countries have taken censuses of their population. We’ll talk about the most commonly used ones, including where to access them online, mostly for free.

March 27, 2023 | Class #4: Genealogy Software – How to Choose and Use It

Many people use online sites to create and store their family trees. A lot of us like to have a program on our own computers so we know who added the information. No one can change data in your own program. There is one exception and we will discuss the relationship between® and Family Tree Maker®.

April 3, 2023 | Class #5: Organization

Now that you have found some data, how do you store it? What do you do with all those paper copies? How can you find images you have saved to your hard drive? These questions and more (plus some answers) will be discussed in this class.
