Saving a Life: Your Family’s Health History — presented by Donna Moughty.
For many years, health professionals have known that many common health problems run in families.  The more you know about your family health history, the more you can do to reduce your risk of serious illness.  As genealogists and family historians, we routinely collect information about our ancestors and the causes of their deaths but putting the information together in a documented health history can not only assist your physician but may save your life.   Passing this information to your children or other family members may also provide them with life-saving information.

9:00 pm
FREE WEBINAR from The Utah Genealogical Association

These live presentations are available, at no cost, to the public without the need of logging into the Member's Area.
 
Presented by Janice Lovelace, PhD 
 
Many families have the oral history that an ancestor was Native American. Minnesota has a significant Native American community and a long history of interaction with non-Native populations over centuries. How does a family researcher begin to discover if it is true that an ancestor is of Native background? What federal, state, and tribal records are available?

Dr. Lovelace is a frequent speaker at national and regional genealogy conferences on health and genetics, ethnic minority genealogy, and research methodology. She authored the National Genealogical Society's continuing education course African American Roots: A Historical Perspective and is an instructor at the Midwest African American Genealogical Institute (MAAGI).
