Register for Webinar Wednesday: Turning dry facts into exciting narrative by Carol Baxter

Register
 
The literary world condemns most family histories as ‘fact-driven and tedious’ because they are usually little more than prose timelines. Yet the phrase ‘family history’ communicates the three ingredients needed to produce a piece of prose that is interesting to read: ‘family’ (the facts about the family), ‘history’ (the historical context) and ‘story’. This seminar focuses on the first two ingredients and shows how we can weave our facts together in such a way that the reader is keen to keep on reading.

About the presenter
CarolBaxter-144x144Carol Baxter is an experienced and informed historian and genealogist, an internationally-acclaimed, award-winning author and a dynamic, inspirational presenter.
 
Carol has been a genealogist for four decades having first become interested in family history research while still at school. Her career as a professional genealogist began when she was appointed Project Officer of the Australian Biographical and Genealogical Record (ABGR). In that role she edited six volumes of early New South Wales muster returns (similar to census returns) and later the convict indents for 1788-1812. She edited many other record series when she became General Editor of the ABGR’s new incarnation, the Biographical Database of Australia. She is a Fellow of the Society of Australian Genealogists and an adjunct lecturer at the University of New England.
 
Her career took a different turn in 2004 when she began writing ‘popular history’ and she had her first manuscript picked up by the first publisher she approached within a few weeks of submission. She is now the author of six ‘true-crime thrillers’ of which ‘An Irresistible Temptation’ (2006), ‘Breaking the Bank’ (2008), ‘Captain Thunderbolt and his Lady’ (2011) and ‘Black Widow’ (2015) were published by Allen & Unwin to critical acclaim. Both Breaking the Bank and Thunderbolt received first prize in writing competitions while Thunderbolt is being made into a feature film. Another of her books is being turned into a computer game. In 2013, Britain’s Oneworld published ‘The Peculiar Case of the Electric Constable with ‘The Times’ (London) writing that it is ‘as lively and readable as a crime novel’ while Britain’s ‘Independent’ praised it as ‘totally irresistible’. Allen & Unwin also published ‘The Fabulous Flying Mrs Miller’ (2017). Ross Fitzgerald, Emeritus Professor of History and Politics, wrote in ‘The Australian’ newspaper: ‘this spellbinding tale of an extraordinary woman is one of the best books I have read in years’. Mrs Miller is being turned into a big budget six-part TV series by the producers of the Academy Award nominated film Lion.
 
‘How to’ genealogy books are among Carol’s other works. She published ‘Writing Interesting Family Histories’ in 2009 and produced a third updated edition in 2016 along with a companion volume ‘Writing and Publishing Gripping Family Histories’. She is keen to help researchers ensure that their evidence is accurate (having encountered much historical research that is inaccurate) so she published ‘Help! Historical and Genealogical Truth: How do I separate fact from fiction?’ in 2016. Her passion for surnames and given names and the knowledge she has acquired by virtue of her linguistics degree and her years working as a transcriber led her to write ‘Help: Why can’t I find my ancestor’s surname?’ (2014) and ‘The Madness of Mac Surnames’, published by Unlock the Past in 2018. A series of handy guides on English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh given names is being published by Unlock the Past in 2019. Unlock the Past also published her lively and humorous pre-beginners guide ‘To Trace or Not to Trace: a family history overview for the curious’ (2018).
 
Carol is the author of the History Detective newsletter, a free email newsletter with tips on history, researching, writing and publishing along with information about her forthcoming publications (including pre-publication discount offers). You can subscribe to the newsletter and find out more about Carol and her books via her website: www.carolbaxter.com.
 
Carol is also a sought-after speaker. She has been a presenter at four Unlock the Past genealogical conferences on international cruise ships, teaching researching and writing skills to family historians. She is also an enrichment speaker telling her true tales of murder, mystery and mayhem on international cruise ships. She recently told Mrs Miller’s tale as a three-part mini-series on the Crystal Serenity from Los Angeles to Auckland and is booked to speak on more cruises. In all of her books and talks, her aim is to educate and to entertain her readers or audiences.

African American Genealogy Webinar Weekend - June 26-28

AfricanAmericanWeekend
Our free webinar weekends in June continues this Friday with the African American 6-class series. First join us for the live introductory webinar on Friday at 12pm eastern U.S. time. Then enjoy the following classes at your leisure (all free through Sunday evening).
African American Genealogy Challenges: What You Need to Know! by Shelley Murphy (NEW!)
Researchers all experience brick walls and they are expected and challenging. The goal is to learn how to combat the challenges. This presentation will walk through the challenges when researching African American ancestry. New methods and strategies will be shared such as how to analyze documents along with tips on organizing your research. (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
Grandma Said: Verifying Oral History by Aaron Dorsey (NEW!)
This presentation will explain the critical role that oral history plays in genealogical research as well as the pitfalls of becoming wedded to it. Individuals will also learn strategies for verifying oral history. Case studies will be used to highlight the various strategies. (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
The Second Middle Passage: Following the DNA Trails by Melvin Collier (NEW!)
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 enslaved people 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 and family structures. Many researchers often rely on a preponderance of indirect evidence to confirm enslaved ancestors. Collier presents two cases where DNA was a valuable piece of evidence that identified and confirmed enslaved ancestors and how DNA research provided clues to determine the areas where two enslaved ancestors had likely been sold away from during the domestic slave trade (Second Middle Passage). (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
Finding Calvin: Following My Enslaved Ancestor Through Multiple Owners - A Case Study by Renate Sanders (NEW!)
In this presentation, Renate models the research process of verifying that her great-grandfather was enslaved, and shares the methodology and documents used to document his owners during 25 years of enslavement. Presented as a case study. (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
DNA Corroborates Oral Tradition About the Parents of a Freedman by LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson (NEW!)
Learn about information needed to make sound decisions on when DNA tests can or should be used in genealogical research, and how to meet the new DNA-specific genealogy standards. (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
African American Genealogy Resources at the Library of Congress by Ahmed Johnson (members-only webinar to be unlocked)
Explore the untold stories of generations past by searching through the records and online resources at the Library of Congress. African American history is recorded in multiple formats that document African Americans in America, including digitized oral histories, newspapers, maps, and photographs among others. This presentation provides an overview of the materials available that will help you reconstruct these wonderful stories. Included is a case study of a former slave and traces his life after emancipation. (Available Friday morning at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/june)
