A Workshop by Gena Philibert-Ortega
Cost and Registration will be announced via PCGS Member email.
You put a lot of time and money into finding your ancestors, so it stands to reason that you want that information to be passed on to the next generation. There are numerous reasons why that doesn't happen, including indifference, disorganization, and lack of knowledge. In this workshop, we will take a look at how you can ensure your genealogy outlives you. We will discuss and create action steps to:
  • Organizing Your Research So it Makes Sense
  • Gifting Your Research
  • Leaving a Paper Trail
  • Getting Your Family Excited about their History
  • Writing Final Instructions
You will leave the workshop with a plan and steps to take to "trash-proof" your genealogy.

Anatomy of Birth Records

Genealogists know everything they need to know about birth records, right? What more is there to know? Successful research means knowing the background of a record and not just where to find it. Knowing more about the history of vital records can mean the difference between knowing why and why not you can find the record you need. This presentation looks at the history of birth records in the United States, variations of those records, and alternatives.

The Material Culture of Death
Most genealogy research stops at searching for an ancestor’s burial place, obituary, or death certificate. There is more to understanding our ancestor’s death than acquiring that information. We will take an up-close look at death in the 19th century, exploring the material culture of death and what it tells us about our ancestors’ lives.
