About the presenter
MarianPierre-Louis-144x144Marian Pierre-Louis is a genealogical writer and speaker who specializes in southern New England research (Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts). Born and raised in Connecticut, she has lived in Massachusetts for almost 20 years. Marian has three generations of recent family ties to Rhode Island and also links to some very old Rhode Island lines.  As a result, these three states have become the focus of her research activity. Unlike most genealogists, Marian is spoiled to spend most of her time working with original records.  You will most often find her researching at a town hall, registry of deeds, probate court or the local cemetery. It's a rare day that Marian has to sit in front of a microfilm reader.
Marian is actively engaged in social media. You can find her starting conversations on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. She frequently speaks on New England topics including house history research, social media, African American research and a broad range of genealogical topics. She is the author of several blogs including: Marian's Roots & Rambles and The New England House Historian. She is the host of the Internet radio shows,  FieldstoneCommon and The Genealogy Professional podcast.
Her website is www.MarianPierreLouis.com.

UGA Virtual Chapter: "Where are the Records on FamilySearch," by James Tanner, April 19th 7pm

Join us Thursday, April 19th, 2018 at 7pm MDT for the UGA Virtual Chapter webinar, "Where are the Records on FamilySearch," by James Tanner.  This webinar is free and open to the public.  Please pre-register at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/499687742914964737

There is a wealth of historical records on the FamilySearch website and not all are accessible from the main search box.  Many have not yet been indexed, so can't be found by just typing in a name or location.  This presentation will discuss the records that are on FamilySearch, how they get there, and how to find them.  Many people will be surprised at the breadth of items there and how to find them.

James Tanner is a popular genealogy speaker and a prolific genealogy blogger.  He is a retired attorney from Arizona and has been interested in genealogy for many years.  His genealogy blogs are http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/ and http://rejoiceandbeexceedingglad.blogspot.com/  He and his wife Ann currently volunteer at the the Maryland State Archives where they are digitizing archival records for FamilySearch.  They previously served as volunteers in the Genealogy Library at Brigham Young University, where they taught many classes and recorded many webinars that are posted on the BYU Genealogy Library YouTube channel.

The UGA Virtual Chapter meets online the third Thursday evening of each month, except December.  Free to the public, you can register for the live presentation by clicking on the link above.  Archived videos of these presentations are available to UGA members on the organization's website.  If you would like to join the UGA for only $35 per year, go to https://ugagenealogy.org/index.php

Better Together: Making Your Case with Documents and DNA - register for Tuesday's BCG webinar by Patti Lee Hobbs, CG

Register-bcg
The genealogical proof standard requires reasonably exhaustive research in solving ancestral-identity problems. DNA evidence is now often part of that research. Even the best DNA evidence must be combined with some traditional research. This webinar will show different ways that genealogical problems have been solved by integrating DNA evidence with the paper trail.
Join us, the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and Patti Lee Hobbs, CG for the live webinar Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 8pm Eastern U.S. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. When you join, if you receive a message that the webinar is full, you know we've reached the 1,000 limit, so we invite you to view the recording which should be published to the webinar archives within an hour or two of the event's conclusion.
