Beyond Certificates: Alternative Sources for Birth, Marriage, and Death  (Online Events)

Event: Beyond Certificates: Alternative Sources for Birth, Marriage, and Death
Host: Harford County Public Library (HCPL)
Presenter: Angela Packer McGhie
Phone: 410-692-7850
Registration is required.

Genealogists seek records of their ancestor’s birth, marriage and death not only to fill in blanks on a pedigree chart, but also to define the scope of their life.
In the twentieth century most states created birth and death certificates, but for earlier time periods locating evidence of these major life events can be a bit more challenging.
In this program, geared for beginners, Angela Packer McGhie, a Certified Genealogist®, will provide attendees with tips and ideas of where to look for records that contain evidence of births, marriages, and death.

This event will be presented virtually on ZOOM.

A valid email address is needed at registration and once registered, you will receive a confirmation email from ZOOM containing the link and your unique password to this event.

You will also receive a reminder email from ZOOM one hour before the scheduled start.

Dr. Roger P. Minert
Program:
Status in German Society 1500 to 1800: Where Did Your Ancestor Fit In?
Thanks to a great extent to the very well-developed and rather inflexible
feudal system in Germanic territories in Europe, our ancestors were quite
stable in their social and economic status. The structure of classes (from the
highest to the lowest) is described in this presentation, with an emphasis on
correctly placing our ancestors on that social scale continuum. Advantages
and disadvantages for our ancestors are discussed, as well as the advantages
for modern historians searching for their ancestors in that world.

Census Records in Germany, 1816–1916
This presentation is based on the results of my sabbatical stay of six months
in Europe in 2015. The traditional mystery of German census records can
now be explained: they are in many ways unlike their counterparts in the U.S.
Frequency, content, methodology, and accessibility of these records in the
thirty-eight states of the German Empire will be explained and illustrated.

German Residential Registration
From the sixteenth century on, local authorities monitored the comings and
goings of strangers and foreigners, keeping ever more detailed records of
newcomers— primarily for the safety of local residents. The personal details
contained in such records make them a valuable resource for family history
research. This presentation exhibits the form and content of residential
registration and traces the historical development up to the late nineteenth
century; by then, in most states every man, woman, and child was
registered—whether local or from elsewhere.

Which Hessen is Which?
Hessen, Hessen-Nassau, Hessen-Kassel, Kurhessen, Rheinhessen, Oberhessen, Hessen-Homburg?
All of these names applied to political entities
in the German-language realm in the nineteenth century and some survive
even today. This presentation will clarify the status of each "Hessen" and
assist genealogical researchers in determining how to access records in those
territories, as well as how to correctly record place names for the events in
ancestors' lives.

A case of Assumption in My Husband's Family History...
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Virtual via Zoom
 
Title "A case of Assumption in my husband's family history....".  
 
Description:  "My topic is about what I learned from a comment that was ASSUMED about my husband's Grandfather.  I began family history research on my own and my husband's ancestors in 1967. Both of our fathers had just deceased and after speaking with family members I learned enough about their Civil War ancestors to propel my immediate visit to the NARA. I DID NOT KNOW anything about how to do genealogy nor did I know about genealogical or historical Societies.  I did a lot just by "Thinking what do I need to get and how to get them".  I didn't think of them as proof and/or evidence. And, in the course of time, I have learned enough to disprove the one significant assumption made along the way. I will tell you what I have learned and why not to make assumptions.  I will also show how I use Scrapbooks to display our family history keepsakes."  
 
Presented by  Arlene Taylor
Bio:  Arlene has been a member of the HCGS since 2014.  She is currently the HCGS Program Chair and previously served as the Vice President. When we were meeting in person, Arlene could be seen setting up the refreshments table (and providing many of the refreshments), passing out attendance sheets, introducing the speakers, etc.  She and her husband regularly made the rounds throughout the county posting meeting notices prior to each monthly meeting. Arlene has been generous with her time supporting the HCGS.
