1. No AAA? How did our Ancestors get here?
Depending on what your ancestors migration trail may be in America, have you ever thought that they came without having Triple A maps and guidebooks? Knowing why and how our ancestors moved west provides clues and insights into our ancestors' lives.
2. Women and the Law: Researching our Female Ancestors
Tracing our foremothers can often be difficult; however, knowing the laws at a particular time can provide information and clues about our female ancestors that most genealogists overlook.
3. Ancestors in the Attic: Finding and Sharing Family Photographs
This session provides information on finding photographs or seeking identification of photographs of our ancestors from distant relatives, libraries, and on the net, preserving, and sharing our photographs with others in using cameras, computer technology and the net.
4. Social History and Genealogy: Filling in the Gaps
During this session, Social History will be discussed to find clues about our ancestors and their lives as well as using Social History to write family histories through fleshing out the bones of information from our genealogical research.
