    Exploring Social History: Telling a Story That They Want to Hear

    by Gena Philibert-Ortega

    What is social history? How can we research social history? How can we use it to tell the story of our ancestor's life? In this presentation, we will define what social history is, how to research social history, and how it can be used with genealogical sources to tell our family history story.

    Gena Philibert-Ortega is an author, researcher, and instructor specializing in the use of social history and material culture to tell the story of historical women's lives. She holds two Master's degrees: one in Interdisciplinary Studies (Psychology and Women's Studies) and the other in Religion. A highly sought-after instructor, Gena has taught material culture and social history at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and is a frequent presenter at seminars and conferences.

    Bounty Land: Colonial to 1855

    by Craig Scott

    From King Philip's War until 1855, bounty land was the expectation of any soldier who served, and during some periods, if he did not survive, his expectation was that his heirs would qualify. Records were created by colonial, state, and the federal government as bounty land was distributed, creating buffers and populating the areas on the frontier and elsewhere where land was available.

    Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA, is the President and CEO of Heritage Books, Inc., a genealogical publishing firm with over 9,500 titles in print. A professional genealogical and historical researcher for more than 35 years, he specializes in records of the National Archives, especially those that relate to the military. He has coordinated the military tracks at IGHR, SLIG, and GRIP in years past. He is currently the Coordinator of the SLIG Consultation Track, helping students solve their brick wall problems.

    About the DNA SIG

    This group focuses on learning the methods for analyzing DNA test results. We study topics such as autosomal DNA, mitochondrial DNA, Y-DNA and surname projects, X-DNA and ancestral admixture results. We'll also investigate third-party tools for analyzing your raw data and comparing DNA and gedcom data with test kit results from companies besides the one you tested with.

    DNA can break down genealogical brick walls once thought impenetrable – but only if you know how.

    This SIG endeavors to be interactive and welcomes your questions. Get ready to put your DNA results to work for you!

    Chicago area family history research can be a challenge due to historical events and the physical size of the area and population.

Maureen has made numerous presentations to genealogical societies, libraries, conferences and workshops throughout the U.S., including presenting webinars for the Brigham Young University Library.

    Safeguarding Your Family History for Now and the Future: Considerations and Techniques for Backing Up Your Research

    by Eric Vavra

    Genealogists invest significant time, money, and passionate effort into the pursuit of connecting with their family history. However, enough focus is frequently not given to protecting their physical and digital files, precious artifacts, and research conclusions. Unfortunately, this too often results in the potential destruction of materials forever or ineffective attempts to reconstruct years of lost work. We will review methods to identify and mitigate risks to preserve your findings and enable a genealogical legacy.

    Eric Vavra has combined his experience in Information Technology and interest in solving the mysteries of his family history to become an avid Genealogist. He combines traditional research approaches with technology to discover and explore his roots. His educational background and professional career as a global delivery consultant provide him with a uniquely diverse set of skills useful for genealogy. He strives to share his knowledge to assist others in their journey as Genealogists.
