The Everyday Life of Our Ancestors

C. Ann Staley, CG, CGL
Date:  Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Time:  7:00 PM Central
  • Description: Our ancestors led lives, just like we do -- only different. Using our lives as an example, how can we parallel our lives to theirs? They ate and drank, married and had families, dressed, had trades and occupations, practiced a religion, dabbled in the arts and sciences, participated in politics and economics, etc.
    This presentation will examine the various aspects of life and provide resources to discover the historical context and personal details of our ancestors' lives. A case study will demonstrate how these details help us to understand better our ancestors' everyday lives.

  • Presenter: C. Ann Staley, CG, CGL, is an educator, consultant, and co-leader of Ann-Mar Genealogy Trips. Her specialties are methodology, research sources, computer resources, vital records and their sources, and conference planning. She is author of several articles for the NGS Magazine, and the co-author of the NGS Research in the States Series-Florida.
