Holiday Inn-Laurel West 15101 Sweitzer Lane, Laurel, MD 20707
 
MGS presents its Fall Seminar, which begins with registration and a continental breakfast and includes a plated lunch. Two well-known speakers will be sharing their genealogical knowledge and expertise. David A. Powell and Robyn N. Smith will be presenting the following lectures: 
 
Finding Original Records Online” - David A. Powell
Genealogists may be frustrated by not finding ancestors in the records and places where they logically expect them to be. This presentation will explain several different ways to search for your ancestors including new techniques for commonly used web sites. Actual case study examples will be used along with suggested strategies to help attendees find their elusive ancestors.                       
 
Finding Foreign Original Records Online” - David A. Powell
Attendees will learn specific ways to find their ancestors in foreign genealogical sources. Original records are being digitized at an accelerated rate and millions more are being added monthly throughout the world.  Actual case studies in France, Poland and England will be used to illustrate the process used for any foreign research.  
 
A Tangled Web: Researching the Enslaved in Maryland” - Robyn N. Smith
Slavery research is difficult under almost any circumstance. In this lecture, Ms. Smith offers a brief overview of the history of African Americans in Maryland. Through case studies, she also provides examples of the unique records available to those researching the enslaved as well as the large population of free blacks.  
             
Cluster Research: Using Groups of People to Find Your People” - Robyn N. Smith
Our ancestors did not live in a vacuum. They lived, worked, socialized, and married amid a larger group of people. Those people included not just family members but friends, neighbors, employers, fellow employees, fellow churchgoers, and business associates. Elizabeth Shown Mills refers to this group with the clever shorthand of the “FAN” club—their family, associates and neighbors. Ms. Smith demonstrates how studying this larger group of people often increases our chance for success in our research.

Using Map Resources to Locate German Ancestral Villages  (Workshop)
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
WORKSHOP – Friday, October 25, 2019
Using Map Resources to Locate German Ancestral Villages
Presented by Bob Greiner
 
What You Will Learn
This hands-on workshop will show you how to use a variety of online resources to locate places in Germany during the 19thcentury. Applications such as the Meyers Gazetteer and Kartenmeister enable you to search for a village name and identify its location on maps of that era. Nineteenth century online maps enable you to visualize the location relative to the rest of the German Empire at that time. Finally, research resources on the MAGS members-only pages can help you to understand the political and geographical boundaries in existence at a point in history. The results of your search can help you determine where to find other resources, such as church and civil records.
You will have the opportunity to try the applications and learn to use their available options. You will learn how to use maps to distinguish boundaries of the German states to understand the jurisdiction in which your ancestors lived.
The intent of this workshop is to help you become familiar with these online applications by using them in class. It is strongly suggested that each participant bring a laptop or tablet with Internet connectivity.
 
Who Should Attend
If you have German ancestors, this workshop will help you understand the many jurisdictions that existed before the German unification. Those unfamiliar with these online map applications will gain knowledge of how they work and what you can learn from them.

Shenandoah Germanic Heritage
Karen Good Cooper
Our German immigrants had a certain kind of agriculture that, along with their particular customs and social beliefs, played a very important part in how American economics, local politics and social bonds developed.
 
Reverend Peter Muhlenberg and the German Element in Virginia
Karen Good Cooper
An Anglican Rector and a Lutheran Minister, Reverend Peter Muhlenberg was the right man in the right place to heavily affect the way the German Element in Virginia responded to the American Revolution. Was his famous speech a true account? Does it matter if it wasn’t?
 
 
Maryland Germans
Debra A. Hoffman
As occurred in Pennsylvania, Germans made up a significant portion of Maryland's population. Learn about their historical significance and how to overcome some of the challenges in researching these settlers.
 
They Came, They Served,
They Went Back Home
Dr. Kenneth W. Heger
Learn how to navigate complex records to locate Americans who left the United States to live overseas and their families, many of whom never left the Old World, and Americans traveling to visit family and friends in Germany.  The Global Journeys Project relies on extensive research among records of the Pension Bureau, the Office of the Secretary of the Interior, the Department of State, and reports to Congress.  This presentation will identify the records sources, explain the information the records contain, provide guidance on how to use the records, and point out indexes and datasets to help you find your ancestor.
