Mid-County Regional Library at 2050 Forrest Nelson Boulevard in Port Charlotte
"Everyday Life in Old Germany and How It Affects Your Research", presented by Joanne Daerr Ryder.
 
There were so many cultural differences in our German ancestor's time that were different from what we know.  
  • Did you know that there were any class distinctions in Germany and very few stepped over into the next class?  
  • Did you know that in retirement, the older couple traded most or all of their land to a married so on the land was divided among all their children?  
  • And so much more!  
As well, we'll look at how some of our problems can be solved by understanding our ancestor's way of life.

Cypress Lake Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 8250 Cypress Lake Drive, Fort Myers
Program: "The Everyday Life of our Ancestors" presented by C. Ann Staley, CG, CGL

We sometimes forget that our ancestors had flesh and bones and stories to tell. Our ancestors led lives, just like us - only different. Using our life as an example, how can we parallel it to theirs? They ate and drank, married and had families, dressed, had trades and occupations, practiced a religion, dabbled in the arts and sciences, participated in politics and economics, etc. Placing our ancestors into their historical context and adding personal details takes time, but it can be done.

  •     Placing our ancestor in a timeline.
  •     Finding Historical Context
  •     Homelife, Weather and the Farmer's Almanac
  •     Ancestral Photographs, Postcards, etc
  •     What Did Your Ancestor Wear?
  •     Court Records
  •     Occupations
  •     Events of the day and the times
  •     And much more.
