Breakout speakers at PGS 2016 Seminar

In previous posts on this Blog we introduced you to Ann Staley, our featured 2016 Seminar speaker. We also told about the topics of her four presentations: The Everyday Life of Our Ancestors; Claws or Clues; Organizing, Analyzing, and Sharing; and Online Resources for Free.

But that’s not all you will hear at the seminar. In addition to our featured speaker, we have three great breakout speakers presenting at the seminar as well. Here they are and the topics they will feature:

DEBBE HAGNER: An amateur-interest in tracing her family's roots led Debbe to pursue a professional career in genealogy. In 1996, she attended Brigham Young University and received a Diploma in Family History. Debbe's private practice features genealogy seminars and workshops, private and confidential family background research, and individual one-on-one family history research assistance.
Debbe’s topic at our seminar will be  “Using FamilySearch.org with Emphasis on the WIKI.”

DEBRA FLEMING: Debra is the principal of The Ancestry Detective™, LLC, a genealogical research firm founded in Pasco County, Florida.  She has been a practicing genealogist for fifteen years, trading her research time between her many New England immigrant ancestors and her husband’s southern colonials. Debra is the Genealogy Instructor for the University of South Florida OSHER Lifelong Learning Center where she earned Roll of Honor Faculty Member status in 2010.
Her seminar presentation will be “Pre-1850 Census Analysis.”

LIZ PEARSON: Liz was born in England where she spent years researching her own family history.  During the late 70's her professional life transplanted her to the U. S.  where she found many opportunities to share her English and Welsh expertise with Anglo Americans researching their roots.
She holds several research qualifications and is an associate member of the Society of Genealogists in London, England.
Liz’s seminar topic will be “How to Access Records Held at the National Archives, Kew, London.”

As you can see, the seminar offers a variety of  topics aimed at different levels of experience. Join us by sending in a registration. The form can be found at the Genealogy Center, or downloaded from http://www.flpgs.org/NMbrs/seminar/2016/SeminarRegForm2016.pdf
