As your family tree grows larger and more complex, you may find that in-depth analysis will help you solve "brick walls", find and correct errors, and help you become more organized in your research.  Some useful tools you can create by using Excel® include:

  • Pre-1850 Census records with Surnames and numbers
  • Post-1850 Census records with communities
  • Research Logs
  • DNA Analysis
  • Citation Trackers
  • Cemetery Analysis
  • Tax Record Analysis
  • Land Record Analysis
  • And lots more!

In this presentation, we will walk through how to build several tools in Excel® and populate them with data from your GEDCOM or external sources.

Event Details
As a 50-year-old veteran, Mr. Carney tells his story in reflection, beginning with his family farming on the Eastern Shore, and proceeding with his odyssey as an enlisted serviceman fighting through an array of battles during the course of the War. This is a narrative that gives a rare glimpse into the life & times of the Revolutionary War through the lens, and military record, of an actual free black Maryland hero. As ‘free blacks’, Mr. Carney and his family serve as archetypes, representing the heritage, perspective, and universal aspirations of their community in a pivotal American period.

The U.S. Federal Government: Underutilized Research Resources
If you ask a group of genealogists what the U.S. National Archives (NARA) has for genealogical research, the most likely answers will be pension records and census. These are valuable resources in our family information quest, but a listing of other NARA holdings of value for our research would easily fill up many pages. Beyond NARA, other federal agencies contain helpful research information. This lecture is designed to acquaint you with other federal records that may hold some of those elusive family details. The examples will have you eagerly awaiting time at NARA.
 
11:30 AM (EDT)
World War I Era U.S. Alien Registrations
The U. S forced registrations of non-citizen Germanic people during WWI. Both males and females over the age of 14 had to register. Some registrations still exist, as do some abstracts, name lists, and court battles. An ancestor may have been interred in a prison camp or had personal property seized. Businesses and schools underwent significant changes for protections. Minnesota required registrations of all non-citizens from every country and those records are available today. All the forms asked for extensive family and background information, including place of birth, family members serving in the military against the U.S. and other helpful family history details.

They Joined, They Associated:
Finding Records of Germanic Organizations and Other Collections
U. S. libraries, historical societies, archives, and university library special collections sections hold the records from many organizations that our Germanic ancestors joined. The organization may have been a German heritage, charitable, religious, resettlement, political, social, or insurance entity. As our parts of our families migrated, so did the records. There may be substantial information on places of origin, relatives, migration, and other details buried away in a manuscript collection. Finding these collections with records of membership, donations, necrologies, stories, activities, and more has become easier in recent years. Many free finding aids online and off lead you to these research nuggets that represent hundreds of years of material.
 
3:00 PM (EDT)
German Research Gems:
Back Issues of Genealogical and Historical periodicals
They sit on library shelves and a vast number are digitized and online today. Genealogical and historical societies and other organizations in the U.S. have been publishing periodicals for decades. Articles have covered culture, migration, ethnicity, military, churches, cemeteries, and other aspects of German ancestry. Specialized finding aids, print and online access, and indexes are covered as we delve into the gems these back issues hold.
