What's in a Name?
Monday, August 9
What's in a Name?  (Live Webinar)
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
LIVE WEBINAR
 
Guest Speaker:  Sara Cochran
 
Description: How much does spelling matter when we're dealing with historical records? Why are there so many variations, anyway? Have you ever wondered if that record for Abraham Miller is really for your Abram Mueller, or why you can't find an ancestor in the Springfield marriage records? This presentation takes a deeper look at how relying too much on spelling has the potential to trip up our research.
 
Presenter Info: Sara Cochran is a full-time professional genealogist with over twenty-five years of research experience. Her research has taken her into nearly every State in the USA and Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Britian. She holds a Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, a Bachelor's Degree in Library Science, and is an alumnus of the ProGen Study Group. She especially enjoys breaking down brick walls for her clients, discovering the stories of black sheep ancestors, and helping individuals preserve their photographic legacy. She is currently the Registrar for the Aurantia Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and volunteers at the National Archives, Riverside office.

Record As You Go, Cite As You Go, & File As You Go
Monday, September 13
Record As You Go, Cite As You Go, & File As You Go  (Live Webinar)
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
LIVE WEBINAR
 
Guest Speaker:  Cyndi Ingle
 
Description: Genealogists tend to get very excited about new records and sources they come across in their research. So much so that they grab a quick copy, download it to default folders, and move on to the next item without thoroughly exploring the source first. All too often they don't take the time to evaluate the source, to write the citation(s) for the source, or to file it in the correct spot. We have to slow down and take the time to think, to file, and to create notes about the source that make it easy to find that source again if needed. Doing this keeps our research more organized, but also keeps our research brain tidy as well. We are much more productive when we can easily put our hands on what we've found in the past. We will explore different options for accomplishing all of these important steps.
 
Presenter Info: Cyndi Ingle is the own of Cyndi's List (https://www.cyndislist.com/), an essential resource for genealogy research. She is an accomplished genealogist and popular national speaker. She will be our presenter for the VGS Annual Seminar on Feb. 23, 2022.
