Migration Patterns of Germans within America presented by Sharon Cook MacInnes, PhD, CG.
 
We’ll explore how historical events channeled Germans into certain areas and how chain migration drew allied families together. Many migrated from NY/MD/PA down the Shenandoah Valley into VA, NC and SC.  Accessible rivers and railroads led to the establishment of the German Triangle between Cincinnati, Milwaukee and St. Louis. The National Road and German-language advertisements channeled them to Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin and points west. The 1848 Revolution led them to the Texas German Belt.  Knowing where your ancestors settled in the mid-1800s can often lead you backwards by considering the migration routes of other Germans, particularly allied families.
 
Presenter: Sharon Cook MacInnes, Ph.D., CG, is a former member of the Board of Directors of the National Genealogical Society.  She specializes in Pennsylvania land records, colonial research, and methodology.  Her 35-year chase over Pennsylvania for elusive ancestors revealed the importance of land to our  ancestors and led her to publish the series "Early Landowners of Pennsylvania: Atlas of Township Warrantee Maps of *** County."   To date, she has compiled and published 8 volumes of county atlases pinpointing the original tracts and their owners. Sharon is the CEO of Ancestor Tracks (http://ancestortracks.com) which is dedicated to publishing online free, downloadable 19th-century maps of every county of Pennsylvania to be used with census records and published county histories.

Dr. Michael D. Lacopo was born and raised in northern Indiana surrounded by extended family always willing to tell tall tales. Intrigued by his maternal family’s claim to be kinfolk of Abraham Lincoln and his paternal family’s stories of murder and mayhem, he took to genealogical research in 1980 to substantiate these family stories.
 
Genealogical research as a hobby was in its infancy in the 1980s. Combing libraries, archives, cemeteries and courthouses as a teenager, Michael gained the skills needed to become a keen researcher. His first major challenge in the world of research was tackled by finding his adopted mother’s birthparents in 1982. You can read about this adventure at his blog at Roots4U.blogspot.com with some engaging storytelling, plot twists and new findings.

Native, First Nations, Indian: Researching Indigenous Peoples presented by Judy Nimer Muhn.
 
Researching tribal peoples can be difficult without basic history and records information.  While this session will review and provide guidance on basic methods of the rich resources of information for Native/First Nations peoples, this session will focus on the variety of records that will document Indigenous peoples as well as share content about the culture, spiritual traditions and aspects of Indigenous societies that can impact how and where records can be found.  NOTE:  This session will not discuss the tribal enrollment process.  Each tribe, as sovereign nations, create their own enrollment information.  Once you are reasonably sure of your relevant Native lineage, you should contact the tribal “Enrollment Office” or tribal council for information on enrollment requirements, procedures and necessary documents.  Most tribes have this information also on official websites.
 
Presenter: Judy has been researching her family tree from the age of 12, specializing in French-Canadian, Acadian, Native American and Michigan research.  Beginning as a professional genealogist in Europe in 1993, she has lectured at the National Genealogical Society (NGS), Federation of Genealogical Society (FGS), RootsTech and other conferences in Europe and around the United States.  Traveling extensively around the world, Judy has visited and researched in the villages and archives of Germany, Scotland, France, Quebec, and Ontario where her or her husband’s family lived, as well as around the United States.  With French-Canadian, Scottish, German, Polish and Native American ancestry, Judy is the owner of Lineage Journeys (www.LineageJourneys.com)  where she conducts research for clients. FOR THE Native/First Nations presentation (2021):  As Judy’s maternal grandmother was of First Nations descent and Judy is part of the Woptura lineage of the Chipps family of South Dakota, she has been researching Indigenous peoples since the 1980s and the presentation includes some of her own family research documents and photos.

DNA: What to Expect When You're Testing by Janeen Bjork.
The AncestryDNA, the 23andMe and MyHeritage marketing campaigns have been great successes and have led millions of people to order test kits. Maybe you've already taken a test and need help understanding your results. Or you have been thinking about it but wanted to know more before you made the commitment. You are encouraged to bring your questions and your relatives who are reluctant to test.
 
Janeen Bjork is a TV Researcher and Genealogy teacher. She will present an introduction to DNA testing for Genealogy that is meant to be accessible to everyone. The discussion will cover the three types of DNA tests (autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y-DNA) and the companies that offer them. The costs of the tests, as well as the best ways to save money on testing, will also be discussed. Real reports will be shown to demonstrate what testing for DNA matches and ethnicity can (and can't) reveal. Attendees will see how different results from five different companies can be. Ms. Bjork has permission from about a dozen relatives to show their test results.
 
The meeting of the society will be via GoToWebinar, a meeting platform that will allow us to meet virtually sponsored by the Florida State Genealogical Society
