April 11, 2015, 10AM - 1PM - Don't miss Chromosome Mapping and Autosomal DNA Analysis with Dr. Tim Janzen, MD. Dr. Janzen will review all of the current major autosomal DNA tests used for genealogical purposes.  The advantages and disadvantages of each test will be discussed.  He will describe innovative techniques to organize and analyze your autosomal DNA matching segment data and describe how to map your genome. Concepts such as phasing and triangulation will be introduced and he will summarize advanced techniques for use of autosomal DNA tests to help break through genealogical brick walls.  It would be best if attendees have taken at least one autosomal DNA test such as 23andMe's test, or one from family Tree or Ancestry prior to the presentation.  No tickets will be sold at the door.  Preticketing is required.   Ticketing

African American Research Workshop - Instructor, Genealogist Alvis Ward Jr. - This is an ongoing free hands-on research workshop comprised of African Americans, also referred to as Black or Afro-American, or those who harmonize with Sub-Saharan Africa, with ancestry, citizenship, or residency in the United States. The workshop is an interactive exchange of research tools, methods and systems, and discussions necessary for progress at individual levels of family histories and genealogies impacted by the 16th Century removal of Africans to America as slaves. No pre-registration is required. For additional information E-Mail :nextleveldna@gmail.com Workshop will not meet during the summer but will resume in September.  Creating and Keeping

Creating and Keeping Electronic Research Logs - Instructors, Genealogist Florene Knapps and Elder White, missionary  - Keeping research organized helps prevent duplication of effort and makes it possible to return to the original source.  Learn to do this in an electronic format...don't create methodology or junk genealogy.  A researcher is judged by the strength of the documentation.

The Taxman Found Your Ancestor - - Can You? - Instructors, Genealogists Karla Henderlong and Medeline Yanov - Tax records contain a surprising amount of information; they can help you locate missing ancestors and fill in gaps in your ancestors' lives. This class will cover:

  • Why are tax records important?
  • What are the benefits of tax records and what can you find in them?
  • What types of tax records are there? (This class focuses on poll, land, and personal property tax records)
  • Where are tax records found?
  • Tips for researching tax records

Where There’s a Will: Probate Records Can Prove Family Connections - Instructor, Genealogist Janice Sellers, APG - Records created around the settlement of an estate when a person dies can be very useful for genealogists as they often describe family relationships, but there are pitfalls also. The instructor will discuss all estate records and also touch on guardianship records.
