Just as we often hear about technological data becoming corrupted, family trees can similarly become corrupted in many ways—as a result of outright deception on the part of the researcher to innocent mistakes made by beginners who ignorantly post false information. Once corruption is identified on a family branch, it is possible to use surrounding evidence to isolate the problem and to use available online tools to prevent the corruption from spreading.

The library offers a free seminar every third Saturday of the month. An opening session is held at 9:00 a.m. featuring a keynote address. Following this session attendees are offered four choices of presentations at both 10:15 and 11:30 a.m.

9:00 a.m.

  • Keynote Address - "Avoid Corrupting Your Family Tree" - Karen Clifford

Just as we often hear about technological data becoming corrupted, family trees can similarly become corrupted in many ways—as a result of outright deception on the part of the researcher to innocent mistakes made by beginners who ignorantly post false information. Once corruption is identified on a family branch, it is possible to use surrounding evidence to isolate the problem and to use available online tools to prevent the corruption from spreading. Once the corruption is understood and the proper evidence is applied, additional relationships can be established, to the great joy of those involved in this work.

Karen Clifford, AG, FUGA, has three genealogy credentials (in the Midwestern, Southern, and Mountain West regions), is president of Genealogy Research Associates, Inc., and is an instructor and curriculum developer in genealogy and technology courses at Monterey Peninsula College (in California) and Salt Lake Community College. She has authored several genealogy textbooks focusing on research methodology, including The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Genealogy, the Internet, and Your Genealogy Computer Program (Genealogical Publishing Company, 2011); Digging Deeper: Understanding Pre-1805 Genealogy Record Groups (graonline.com, 2012); and Becoming an Accredited Genealogist (Ancestry.com, 2002).

Boy Scout Workshop / Genealogy Merit Badge

Presented by Sean and Keith Wahlquist
No registration is necessary.

The library offers a monthly workshop to assist Boy Scouts with their Genealogy Merit Badge. The workshop is held the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Saturday, May 11, 2013 / 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Scouts must prepare for the workshop by doing the following:

1) Interview a family member about their life. The interview can be completed by telephone, e-mail or letter and the information learned must be recorded;
2) Complete a four-generation pedigree chart. Make sure this includes information about at least one ancestor who was living in 1930;
3) Complete two family group sheets (one listing your parents and your family, and another listing one of your parents and their parents and siblings); and
4) Bring a blue merit badge card (which can be obtained from the Scoutmaster.)

If these items are completed and brought to the workshop, all other requirements for the merit badge can be finished at the workshop and authorized personnel can certify the completion of the merit badge.
