Who Cares Who Their Neighbors Were? You Do! That’s Who! | 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Your ancestors did not live solitary lives. They lived, loved, hated, sued, and died all within a particular group of people. Examining this cluster of people may be the only way to get to your ancestors and the questions concerning them.

The Hand that Rocked the Cradle Could Rule the World | 11:45 AM – 12:45 PM
Half of the people on your pedigree chart are female, and may be the most difficult to identify. With a basic knowledge of sources created about and by women, and how to locate these sources, finding the females in your family may not be so hard after all.

Brown Bag Lunch Break 12:45 PM – 1:30 PM

Probate: More Than a Will | 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Most persons in the U.S. who lived to adulthood left some type of an estate to be administered. The records of probate can be some of the most fruitful records for genealogists. Wills, distributions, administrations, and inventories are all vital parts of the probate process and full of genealogical information.
