Pinellas Genealogy Society Free Lecture Series Features George G. Morgan

The Pinellas Genealogy Society is pleased to announce another in its Lecture Series, this time featuring George G. Morgan giving two presentations. The first is “Laying Out Clues in Funeral Home Records”:  synopsis--Funeral home and mortuary records can provide clues to many other sources, especially before death certificates were issued and between censuses. Learn what information may be included, what it infers, and places to locate the records. Examples of records from online sources are presented and discussed.

The second is “Timelining Your Ancestors”:  synopsis--Your ancestors lived complex lives, interacting with family members, friends, neighbors, and associates of all types. They participated in their communities, and they were affected by events in their communities and around the world. You want to place your ancestors into geographical, historical, and social context so that you can better understand their lives. This seminar suggests a wide array of resources for locating details about your ancestors, and presents a methodology for constructing a chronological timeline of their lives.

This event is free and open to the public and runs from 11am to 3pm at the Largo Public Library (120 Central Park Drive, Largo, FL) on Saturday, 18 November 2017. There will be a short break for lunch after the first presentation. Plan to bring a brown bag lunch, or make use of the Bookmark Café in the library.
