    Your 19th & 20th Century Mexican Ancestors in the U.S.

    Historical records and social history paint a rich picture of the lives of our Mexican ancestors who were in the U.S. after the mid-19th century. A new border, new laws, a violent revolution, two world wars, and changing economic and political conditions significantly impacted your Mexican ancestors who came to or were born in the United States. Sharing a border, and sharing a long common history in certain regions of the U.S. has presented situations unique to those of Mexican descent compared to other immigrant and ethnic groups. Presented by guest speaker Colleen Robledo Greene.

    Genealogy Face2Face - Presented by Clayton Library Friends

    This is a weekly roundtable discussion for Clayton Library Friends members and the general public related to genealogy research. 

    Topic: "Finding Aids and Links to Sources for Locating Historic Homes, Businesses, Schools and Churches etc. of Your Ancestors and their Relatives" by Randy Pace

    Finding and researching historic buildings adds another dimension to the many stories about your ancestors and their relatives who have lived, worked, shopped, worshipped and attended school in them as well as their physical architectural characteristics that define their style in the era in which your ancestors lived.

    Randy Pace currently lives in a historic home located within a historic district in Houston , Texas. He has also personally restored many historic homes and commercial buildings, and he retired after 16 years as the Historical Preservation Officer for the City of Houston in May 2011. He currently serves as the Clayton Library Friends, Director of Publicity and Public Relations. Randy began researching his family history as a freshman in Junior High School. Not only does he continue to discover his heritage, but he also enhances his heritage with the historic buildings associated with his many ancestors and their relatives.

    10 AM – 10:50 AM | NARA Mythbusters: Your Family IS in the Archives

    Judy G Russell, JD, CG, CGL, The Legal Genealogist. Sponsored by: Friends of Corpus Christi Public Libraries.

    “All the military records were burned in the fire.” “There isn’t any birth, marriage or death information in federal records.” “There aren’t any details about ordinary families at the National Archives.” These kinds of myth-statements stop genealogist from breaking down all kinds of brick walls using the wealth of information in NARA records. Join the mythbusters with the treasures the National Archives holds for your family.

    Difficulty: Beginner


    11 AM – 11:50 AM | Methodology: Using Timelines to Focus Your Research

    Susan Ball, President TxSGS

    The most important tool you can use to research your ancestor is a timeline. Learn how to construct a timeline for your ancestor and use it to uncover previously overlooked avenues for research.

    Difficulty: Beginner


    12 PM – 1:15 PM | Beginning Genealogy Workshop

    Kathy Huber, MLS, Director of the Tulsa Genealogy Center, Hardesty Public Library

    This workshop will explain the steps necessary to begin your family history research and introduce useful records that will assist you in getting started on the right tract. Exploring some basic genealogy research records, we'll discuss how to locate and use them to your advantage. Bring lunch and join us for this informative and fun workshop.

    Difficulty: Beginner


    1:25 PM – 2:30 PM | So, You’ve Found Your German Town of Origin, Now What?

    Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG. Sponsored by: Waco-McLennan County Library

    Finding your ancestor’s town of origin can be exciting. Once this piece of information is found, you might be left wondering how to get records from the other side of the ocean. This lecture focuses on how to get records for German towns. Highlights include verifying the location, strategies for identifying misspelled town names, finding historical jurisdictions, finding records for that town, useful aids for reading those records, and tips for hiring a professional genealogist in Germany when necessary.

    Difficulty: Intermediate


    2:40 PM – 3:35 PM | Fingerprinting Our Families: Using Ancestral Origins as a Genealogical Research Key

    Curt B. Witcher, MLS, FUGA, IGSF Manager, The Genealogy Center Senior Manager, Special Collections, Allen County Public Library

    Explore how the concept of “America, the Great Melting Pot” may really be a flawed concept. Identifying the ethnic group of one’s ancestor or potential ancestor can pay some significant research dividends. Topics include how to build a historical context for one’s ancestor, studying population clusters, paying attention to patterns of all sorts (naming, migration, settlement, etc.), understanding the motivations of migration, and locating resource repositories.

    Difficulty: Beginner


    3:45 PM – 5 PM | Attacking 18th and 19th Century Mysteries with DNA

    Blaine Bettinger, Ph.D., J.D., The Genetic Genealogist. Sponsored by: Waco-McLennan County Library

Learn how to harness the power of Shared Matching to pull out matches related via a mystery ancestor, how to build Research Trees to quickly identify common ancestry, and more!

    Difficulty: Intermediate


    5:10 PM – 6 PM | Filling in the Family Stories

    Susan Kaufman, Senior Manager, Houston Public Library, Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research

    This presentation, through examples of sources, will help you to understand the context in which your family lived, celebrated, cooked, listened to music, and other daily activities that all help provide the stories that make our families come alive. Stories in context go beyond just a name, date and place on a pedigree chart. Social history helps us to better understand lives, provides context to our research, adds interest to the pedigree chart and can also lead to additional records.

    Difficulty: Beginner


    6:10 PM – 7 PM | Discover Genealogical Treasure Using Historic U.S. Maps

    Hannah Kubacak, Genealogy Librarian, Genealogy Center Waco-McLennan County Library

    Maps provide a valuable tool for understanding the world as it was when our ancestors were living. Explore a variety of resources for finding and using historic maps. A few of the maps to be discussed during this presentation will include Fire Insurance maps, county boundaries, Public Land Survey System maps, and land grants.

    Discovering Your Female Ancestors

    Finding your female ancestors can be a challenge because of the changing of surnames through marriage and because less historical records on women are available the further in time we go. Women may only be referred to as wife in a will or by their husband’s name on a church register. The African American descendants of enslaved women have a much bigger challenge because of the lack of surnames in the wills and deed records of slaveholders and the inconsistency in surname use after Emancipation. Clayton Library staff member Rodney Sam will provide research strategies and tips for genealogists looking to uncover the history of their female ancestors.

    Did I Get Everything? – Creating a Checklist for Genealogy Research

    Are you really done with researching that ancestor? Many genealogists think they have a brick wall when, in fact, they just haven’t done a “reasonably exhaustive search.” Learn how to assemble a genealogy research checklist to take your genealogy to the next level.

These levels include using genealogy networks, going beyond online research with the help of Family Search Centers and other “offline” resources, and crafting a genealogy research checklist.
