Female Connections are the Best Road to Research Success  (Community Genealogy Course)
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Walt Library 6701 South 14th St. Lincoln
Irish Research -
Female Connections are the Best Road to Research Success”  presented by Kevin Cassidy of GreenGenes Genealogy Services.
 
This session will examine how to discover a family's story through its female members. There may be a dearth of female records from early census or lack of voting records compared to their male counterparts. However, just like today most families maintained closer ties with their mothers and sisters than their fathers and brothers. Too often a family name that is unknown to the researcher is overlooked and later turns out to be a family of a married sister or daughter or other female relative. This session will explore how to review your records and discover female relatives from census, sacramental and court papers among others. These side doors may be the link to success.

Irish Research -
"Follow Your Family Through Their Chain Migration"  presented by Kevin Cassidy of GreenGenes Genealogy Services.
 
This session recognizes that few Irish immigrants left home and had no contact with their families ever again. Most did follow a path where they would have familiar faces and jobs prospects. This course will examine the naturalization papers, passenger lists, sacramental and census records among others to find the link between the immigrant and his relatives and neighbors in the home country and the new.
