October 19, 2015 Membership Meeting
Our President, Al Wakenhut, will present case studies on his personal research. He will start off with a question about a family member and then go through the steps he took to answer the question and other information he found. There will be no guarantees that he will actually solve the problem. If he gets stuck, he will welcome your suggestions for further research. These presentations will be on researching and how to decipher records discovered, and will not involve entering data into Legacy Family Tree.
Our schedule for Monday, October 19, 2015 will be:
5:30 pm Bring your own dinner, and enjoy conversation with other members.
6:00 pm Refreshments, Q & A, open forum. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about researching and using Legacy Family tree. You are encouraged to report on your research results.
6:30 pm Research case study by Al Wakenhut
7:30 pm Break
7:40 pm Another research case study
Western Wayne County Genealogical Society Repeat of the 2014-2015 Workshops
We will repeat our very successful series of workshops on locating genealogical records, evaluating them and entering the data into Legacy Family Tree software. These sessions will not be on our regular meeting nights
How do you answer the following questions?
Are you a novice and want to learn more about your ancestors, but don’t know where to start?
Do you want to learn where you can find records for those folks?
Do you already have piles of records and papers and don’t know what to do with them?
Do you want to learn how to enter all of your genealogical data into a software program on your computer?
Are you already an accomplished genealogist, but want to learn more about research techniques and maximizing software benefits?
Do you want to be able to provide your relatives with family tree charts and reports so that they can understand why you spend so much time doing genealogical research?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, plan on attending the workshops scheduled for next year by the Western Wayne County Genealogical Society. The workshops will be held in classroom "A" in the Livonia Civic Center Libary.
We will be doing an actual research case study of the Henry Ford family and will provide detailed information on how and where to find records, how to evaluate them, and how to properly enter them into a reliable genealogical software program. Records used will include: census, birth, baptism, marriage, death, cemetery, city directories, passenger lists, passport, obituaries and more. Research techniques used for the Ford family can be used for researching any family. We will be using Legacy Family Tree software, but help will be provided for other programs such as Family Tree Maker and RootsMagic.
The workshops will be held in Classroom "A" in the Livonia Civic Center Library, on the following monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. 11/2/15, 12/7/15, 1/25/16/ 3/7/16, 4/4/16/ 5/2/16.
For members, a downloadable handout and the complete PowerPoint file for each session will be available free on our website.
