PGS Events for the Week of 3 - 7 May 2022

 Tuesday, 3-May-22 at 1:00 PM. Maps in Genealogy Research (Part I) -- Maps can reveal much about the lives our ancestors led and the conditions under which they lived. They can also reveal hints on where to look for other important documents. There are many different types of maps available to the researcher, and this class deals with road, city, political, insurance, and migration maps. Summers, Hybrid meeting; LH Room and online via Zoom

Wednesday, 4-May-22 at 6:00 PM. Photos in Genealogy--What is a family tree without photos to enhance the story?  But many old photos are degrading with age in storage.  And we can’t always travel to see the newest members of the family.  Even when we do get to snap the picture, the quality is less than what we expect for historical purposes.  And how do we get it off our phones and into our books and online trees?! This fully packed training will cover these issues and more as we learn tips of the trade for your pictures. Coffey, Hybrid meeting; LH Room and online via Zoom.
