November 17, 2012

Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center

The Genealogical Society of Marion County and the Indiana Historical Society are partnering to present the 2012 GSMC November Conference. Certified genealogist Jana Broglin will present four lectures:


America's Expansion: The Ohio Country: 1783-1812
From the end of the Revolutionary War to the beginning of the War of 1812, the United States was challenged with expansion. With the Northwest Territory, new problems arose with governing the area and selling the land. Learn about the new land ordinances, skirmishes, settlements and finding aids for genealogical research in the early Ohio Country.

Isn't that Special?
There is more to the federal census than the population schedules. This lecture discusses the special census authorized by the federal government, state schedules, statistical schedules and the use of the recapitulation of these schedules. The special census adds to the information about the ancestor, from the crops he grows, to the slaves he owns, to his military service and to his death.

See Ya in the Funnies
There is more to a newspaper than just the comic section. Find clues to vital records, probate court records and land records. Learn how to add social history to your ancestor’s lives by using the local newspaper.

Hookers, Crooks and Kooks
Each of us wants to ignore that scalawag, that counterfeiter or that madam in our family, but the black sheep may prove the most interesting of all. Learn to examine clues in unusual and also common sources. Learn how they lead to locating more records. Topics include: family tradition, census records, court records and military records
