Speaker: Dr. June Koelker

Topic: Researching with Archives at TCU

The Mary Couts Burnett Library on the TCU campus can be an important resource for genealogy research. Dr. Koelker will discuss the many finding aids available from the web, full text documents available from the library’s digital repository and walk-in access to material in Special Collections that will be of value to genealogists.


February Meeting Flyer

Speaker: Clay Patterson, FSA Scot

Topic: “Writing a Family History”

The hardest part is getting started. Clay will share ideas on assembling & writing your family history, no matter how large or small, and perhaps even publishing it for the benefit of others. Many previously unknown cousins, some who know more of our family than we do, “come out of the woodwork” with new information when a family history work is published.


March Meeting Flyer

Speaker: Nancy Maxwell

Topic: Using PERSI - (PERiodical Source Index)

The Periodical Source Index is a unique subject index for genealogy and local history periodical articles. It was created by the staff of the Allen County Public Library Foundation and the ACPL's Genealogy Center. Genealogical researchers have found it to be a superior research tool. Come find out how you can use it too.


April Meeting Flyer
April

Speaker: Sheryl Rasher

Topic: More Than Just Common Census,
A Look At Non-Population Schedules

While population schedules count people, in the 19th century, non-population schedules were used to identify and quantify the country’s resources. Agriculture, manufacturer, mortality, and social statistics schedules are some of those completed with the U.S. Federal census between 1850 and 1900. These provide insight to our ancestors and their communities. Content, genealogical value and availability of these rich records will be discussed.
