Kentucky Genealogical Society To Hold Annual Seminar with J. Mark Lowe

The Kentucky Genealogical Society will hold their annual seminar on Saturday, August 2 from 9 am to 4 pm in Frankfort, Kentucky. J. Mark Lowe will be the featured speaker, with sessions on:

  • Documenting the "Right" Family While Staying on Track - Learn simple techniques for breaking down difficult research problems into manageable segments, including the basics of documentation and why it is an important family research tool.
  • Research in the South and Everywhere Else: Review, Prepare and Plan - Major concepts to consider with your family research project include migration, settlement patterns, religion, land and geography. Learn how to find available resources and develop a strategy to find ancestors.
  • Making Those Early Census Records Talk to You - Stop avoiding those pre-1850 census records. Turn those 1's and 0's into clues and lively pictures of your family.
  • From County to Commonwealth - Learn about the records that transcend the development of Kentucky County, Virginia to the Commonwealth of Kentucky in 1792. Learn about the earliest counties and how to find the right records.
