The America of our 19th Century Ancestors
Presenter:  Robert Bee
This presentation will explore events that affected our ancestors who lived in the 1800s in America.  The topics include boundary changes that gradually eliminated the “frontier,” transportation, communication, wars, immigration, migration, land grants and industrialization.  Illustrations from the presenter’s collection of family letters and stories will personalize several of these events. 
Speaker’s Bio:

DNA match with no tree? no problem!Image result for Lisa Louise Cooke image
Have you been frustrated by finding a DNA match only to discover they have not linked their family tree? Their tree is probably not the only tree that includes their matching ancestor, and with some creative and persistent sleuthing, it can be found. Join us as we walk through the case study of a DNA match without a tree, and learn the techniques to not only find a tree, but then incorporate additional strategic techniques to possibly uncover the connection between you and the match. Google guru Lisa Louise Cooke will walk you through the process in this ground-breaking session.  This presentation will be brought to us through Skype.
