October 14 – Census Analysis
Presented by Debra Fleming, the principal for The Ancestry Detective, LLC, a genealogical research firm located in Pasco County. Most people 'check out' when they get to the Pre-1850 census records. As heads of household are the only listed persons in the Census, people often underestimate the information they can glean from early census records. Debra Fleming will use a case study of a Southern Methodist Minister born 1771 and passing in 1842 to describe the methodology behind Census Analysis. Debra will show you that anyone can decode the wealth of information available in pre-1950 Census Records.
November 11 - Introduction to Ellis Island and Castle Garden
Presented by Debbe Hagner, a professional and accredited genealogist. She will show how to use the http://stevemorse.org website to find immigration records. He has developed a Gold Form for searching for Ellis Island passengers in One Step. Also there is a form for searching all NY passengers (1820-1957) in One Step.
