Gowj-100Wednesday - Researching Your New Zealand Ancestors by Jan Gow
You may not have a family member (sibling of your ancestor) who was born, married and died in New Zealand, but if you do - lots of footprints for you to find. If they had just one of these events in New Zealand -there is a gold mine waiting for you. Let's look at Passenger Lists, Civil Registration (our unique, amazing Historical B, D, M's), Church Records, Cemetery Records, Schools, Wills, Family Histories, Newspapers and others researching your family names.

Waltonrajia-100Friday - Researching Ancestors in the Era of Freedom by Angela Walton-Raji
The years right after the Civil War were critical years for all southerners white and black. Amazing records reflect that incredible time during those years. This session will explore several amazing record sets and will point to where they can be found.
