21 Jul 2022 - Amy Larner Giroux, PhD, CG, CGL
Faded Echoes of the Civil War: Correlating Evidence of Identity and Kinship
Webinar Abstract: The presentation recounts the research involved in identifying New England and Mid-West Union soldiers whose burials in St. Augustine, Florida, were lost to time. The research begins with an 1865 stereogram photograph housed at the Library of Congress. Attendees will learn methods of researching record groups for men whose names were not known. This involves working within locality related sources to identify potential men, and then verifying them through other documentation. A case study illustrates the methods and highlights some of the documentation used to solve this research problem and to connect these men to their families.

From Deeds to Dirt: Analyzing Research with Maps
Webinar Abstract: Our ancestors existed in a time and a place. Maps are one way to give the names and dates in our genealogical research more life, context, and excitement. Where did they live? What would they have seen? How did they get around? Cari Taplin will examine various ways researchers can use maps to trace their ancestors and their research. Some of the topics she will cover are:
A look at different types of maps
Tech tricks for using maps such as Google Maps‘ "My Places"
Using maps to determine possible migration routes
Using collected research to recreate neighborhoods
Using maps as an alternative (or additional) research log
Online map collections
Mini-case studies to illustrate using maps for analysis
