Ancestry.com SIG

Presenter Del Reinhhart


 

 The objective of this Special Interest Group (SIG) is to discuss various functions and capabilities of Ancestry.com.  The presentations are a combination of Power Point slides and live demonstration of the Ancestry.com program, with an emphasis on the latter.  Since the SIG is held multiple times per year, we attempt to discuss different functions and capabilities at each session.  Those include; but are not limited to the following:

 --New functions and changes

 --Functions that may not be well known by current users; but are very helpful in conducting research.

 --A periodic review of the most useful and popular functions of Ancestry.com.

 --Due to the rapid growth in the use of DNA in genealogy and the importance of Ancestry’s DNA testing and software functions, we usually spend some time in each session discussing the use of Ancestry’s DNA functions.

 --At each session we attempt to leave about 15 minutes at the end of each session for questions and answers.

--We welcome suggestions at each session of topics for future sessions

 

                                                      


 Introduction to the British Isles

                                                     Colin Whitney

This talk will introduce you to the British Isles and provide a framework for researching your British ancestors. We cover the names for regions of the British Isles, the county structure and recent changes, as well as the Dioceses of both the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England. The main record types are discussed, their location, and guides on how to access them.
