Saturday, 13 Feb 2016-- Annual Pinellas Genealogy Society Seminar, co-sponsored by the Largo Public Library from 8 am to 4 pm.
Our featured speaker is Ann Staley, CG, CGL, and we have three breakout speakers as well. Ann’s four presentations will deal with:
· piecing together the everyday lives of your ancestors,
· how to attack research brick walls,
· organizing, analyzing, and sharing your genealogical data, and
· exploring popular and not-so-well-known free websites.
Ann is a nationally known speaker and we are excited about her presentations at this event.
The topics of the breakout sessions will be
- using the FamilySearch.org website, particularly the Wiki, with Debbe Hagner,
- researching the pre-1850 census with Debra Fleming, and
- a look at the records of the National Archives in Kew, London, and how to access them with Liz Pearson.
In addition to the speakers, the event boasts a continental breakfast, box lunch, raffles, door prizes, huge book sale, and plenty of time to network with other researchers and guest organizations.
The registration fee is $40 for PGS members and $45 for non-members. After 6 February, the cost is $50, so register early.
The library is located at 120 Central Park Drive, Largo, FL
