In order to find an ancestor's tombstone, the burial ground must first be found. Tips are given on how to find the different cemeteries depending on the time period, type (church or commercial), and economic condition of the deceased. Tombstones are the last monuments to our lives on this earth. In their shape and inscribed symbols, they can speak of the lifestyle of the deceased or the attitude of death of the loved ones left behind. They are being destroyed by many factors, which make them illegible or eradicate them altogether. Abandoned and "lost" cemeteries can be found through records and natural signs. Discussion includes ways to read "illegible" stones, which may be the last time a person may hear the tombstone "speak." This webinar illustrates these techniques and shows what problems are encountered in reading a variety of markers and what might be done to overcome them. Internet sources and resources are also discussed throughout the lecture. This was presented to a live webinar audience on May 13, 2016. 1 hour 48 minutes, plus 4 pages of handouts.

Fire insurance maps were developed in the late 19th century to assist insurance companies in managing their risk of coverage in areas where they did not have a physical presence. Over 54,000 maps were made of communities large and small and many communities had multiple maps created between 1895 and 1920. These maps today offer an incredible window into the past, illustrate the evolution of these communities and describe the physical environment of the lives of our ancestors. We will explore the history of the maps including the the Sanborn Map Company which had a virtual monopoly by the 1920s. We will also identify where to access these maps and, using four case studies, illustrate how these maps can solve our genealogical problems and add context to the lives of our ancestors.

Confirming Enslaved Ancestors Utilizing DNA - Digital Download
List price: $12.95
Introductory price: $9.95
You save $3.00!

With slave ancestral research, one is often faced with direct evidence vs. indirect evidence. Many forms of direct evidence that emphatically prove family relationships, birthplaces, and other happenings are often non-existent because slaves were merely considered “property”. Some researchers have been very fortunate to find rare pieces of direct evidence, in the form of old family letters, diaries, ledgers, Bibles, etc., to positively identify enslaved ancestors. Many researchers often rely on a preponderance of indirect evidence to confirm enslaved ancestors. Collier will present cases where DNA was the direct piece of evidence that identified or confirmed an enslaved ancestor.

You save $3.00!

Hundreds of thousands of genetic profiles for family history and ancestral purposes have been generated by private laboratories, universities, and the National Geographic’s Genographic Project during the past fifteen years. However, many individuals that had their DNA tested were somewhat disappointed, as the information provided by many laboratories is often difficult to understand. What do all these numbers and letters mean? What can they tell about my past? As Ann Tuner and Megan Smolenyak stated in their book, Trace Your Roots with DNA, “test results for just one person are like the sound of one hand clapping.” The great paradox in genetic genealogy is the fact that in order to understand your own DNA, you need to know something about the DNA of everyone else! Thankfully, a number of online databases are providing large quantities of searchable data in an effort to provide the missing hand. Knowing which resources are available and how to properly use them is key to understanding our personalize genetic genealogy and getting the most out of our own genetic profile.

Customer Reviews
  • "Today I started on the training videos - and wish I had done them right away when I first put Legacy on my computer. I just finished the first of the four videos: "12 Step Checklist to Using Legacy Family Tree". Those 12 steps answered a lot of questions that I have seen brought up in the User Group. I am so glad I purchased them. Just wish I had used them to begin with." - Peggy
  • "I am an experienced genealogist (15 yrs) and run my own research business. I thought that I would be able to figure out everything the program offers just by playing with it. After having a bunch of unanswered questions I went ahead and ordered the training videos thinking all the while I was wasting my money. WRONG! I learned so much in the training videos. I think they should be mandatory. :) I was not using the program to its full potential and now I am having so much more fun with it." - Michele
  • "I just started with Legacy 2 weeks ago, imported 3,000+ individuals. The videos arrived yesterday and they are a great help to get as much out of Legacy as possible from the beginning. It is easy to hear that you talk from experience and is not just a seller. The videos are really worth the money - glad I bought em all." - Hanne
  • "I recently purchased a set of the Legacy training videos and upgraded to Legacy 6. If anyone is wondering about them, let me tell you that they are definitely worth it! I thought I had pretty much figured out many of the features, but, boy, there was lots to learn. I am now back to entering information that I have gathered for quite awhile and it is fun where it used to be a chore!" - Nancy
  • "I bought the training video package when I bought Legacy 6, and I think they are fantastic. They are well worth the cost. As a new Legacy user, I find them invaluable." - Karen
  • "I thought you might be interested that I even learned something. I had used the simple workings in the past, not knowing the more powerful ramifications. All I can say, is, absolutely well done." - Mark
  • "May I say how much I like your training videos. Unlike some training videos they are neither hard to understand nor patronizing." - Steve
  • "Because of my background as a certified and professional family researcher, the topics most helpful to me were those on adding and editing sources. The videos explained it thoroughly." - Brenda
  • "It is so much better to see the records and sources on the screen while someone is explaining it." - Mary Ann
