HomeEventsGenealogy Seminar, Saturday 24 Oct 2009: Cuyahoga County Council of Genealogical Organization’s 2009 Tri-C-GO Seminar

Despite a long work week, I will be getting up bright and early tomorrow to attend the Cuyahoga County Council of Genealogical Organization’s 2009 Tri-C-GO Seminar. It’s a two-track seminar:

Track 1 – Using Time Tested Research Resources
“Tapping Into Archived Courthouse Records” —- Dr. Judith Cetina, Manager & Archivist, Cuyahoga County Archives
“Get ‘Em Talking-interviewing Relatives for Ancestral information” – Sunny Morton, writer and lecturer
“Discovering Archival Collections & Resources” — Ann Sindelar, Reference Supervisor, WRHS Library
“Researching in German & other ethnic Newspapers” —– Jean Hoffman, Certified Genealogist

Track 2 – Using New Research Resources
“Finding Family on Footnote.com” — Wally Huskonen, Certified Genealogist
“New Approaches to Researching Passenger Lists for Ellis Island and other Ports of Entry” — Robert Jerin, lecturer, author, travel guide.
“New Resources for lnternet Research’– Jann Pflieger, former director Sandusky Family History Center
“Googling for Great Grandpa & Other Ancestors “——- Wally Huskonen, Certified Genealogist

I will be attending the first track classes. Despite having done quite a bit of research in Ohio and Pennsylvania, I really have not researched here in my own backyard. I look forward to learning a little more about the resources in this area. Plus, you never know when something you pick up one place might be applied to help solve a problem somewhere else. Should be a fun day!
