Saturday, December 5
December Social  (Meetings)
11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Online Zoom Meeting - Link Will be E-mailed to Members
The 2020 Holiday Social will feature two virtual tours with narration on Saturday, 5 December 2020, beginning at 11:00 A.M. The link for this Zoom meeting will be emailed to all members closer to the date. Since this is a members-only event, the link will not be posted online, and no registration is necessary. Although not as “social” as the usual NHG annual event, program co-chairs Faith Jack and Kate Townsend will facilitate questions and discussion with a chance to interact with other members. Each virtual tour will last about thirty minutes. In honor of the four hundredth anniversary of the Mayflower’s landing, the first tour will be about the Plimoth Plantation. Then jumping ahead three centuries, the second tour will be through the Ellis Island museum. Both virtual tours were newly created this year. Mark your calendar now, and plan to attend from home!

If you’re very serious about genealogy, you need tools to help you record names, dates, places, relationships and sources, not to mention family stories and photographs. You’ll also want to take advantage of huge collections of online records and family trees and share your family history online. Genealogy software, an online tree or a combination of the two can help you accomplish those tasks. Rick will compare the most popular options, including RootsMagic and Family Tree Maker software, Ancestry Member Trees and the FamilySearch Family Tree. He’ll also describe how you can synchronize your family trees on your computer, mobile devices and online family trees.

Finding and Using Manuscript and Special Collections Repositories

Finding and Using Manuscript and Special Collections Repositories  (Meetings)
6:45 pm to 9:00 pm
Online Zoom meeting - See registration Link
So you have checked census, probate, church, naturalization, and other records. The obituaries, marriage, birth, and death records have also been located. Yet, you still have too many blank spaces on your family group sheets. You still don’t have enough of the story about some ancestors to really know who they were. Your next step might be using manuscripts and checking out special collections in various repositories. The treasures which might be found are too often neglected. Should you check in the ancestral localities? Of course, but manuscripts may end up anywhere. Fortunately more and more finding aids are available to help us find a manuscript which might pertain to an ancestral locality or person many states away from where they lived. These collections also may yield you some humorous or poignant finds.
