Betty Swan: Valorie's is breaking up [some had internet problems]. Robert Marvin: Hello from Southern California where is currently 55 degrees and rainy - ugh. VZ: it was rainy and windy here.

While discussing different ways to privatize, we saw a demo of screenshotting and using the blur function. Nadine Guilbault: How much does it cost for Awesome screenshots? [Answer: free. Most of them are, whether browser add-ons or standalone applications such as Flameshot https://flameshot.org/]. Nadine Guilbault: Thank you. Maureen Trotter: https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/.

Ed Vandehey: For the people that you had privatized, do you think it would reveal too much by putting "private (male)" or "private (female)"?

Janis Littlefield: what and when is the next study group? [Next Study Group (Members Only) will be Monday evenings 6 pm Pacific. We have not yet decided on a start date in February or March. We'll study Research Like A Pro With DNA].

Ed Vandehey: Grandson 1 of son 2 for ancestor Bill Smith, could you use "Bill Smith M2 M1"? Maureen Trotter: Ed, whether that would work would depend on how complex your argument is. If there are lots of people and a complex situation, readers will get lost very quickly. If the sex of the match is important to a part of your proof argument, perhaps you could mention it then. Ed Vandehey: Good point, Maureen. Thank you. Maureen Trotter: Sometimes colour coding cells of a descendancy chart pink or blue might work. Lorraine Hladik: That works in a chart and maybe in excel. 

Anna Lowe: Have you looked at IL land domain with IL state archives. VZ: I have not, but that is now on my list of more research I need to do on my William McBee, and my McBee branch. 

Sylvia Nelson: Diahan Southard, in her Legacy webinar, used the color dots she created in her spreadsheet. It was a very good webinar and free for a few more days, but always available with a Legacy membership. The 5 steps to organizing your DNA in 2023 - Free through January 11, 2023: https://familytreewebinars.com/webinar/the-5-steps-to-organizing-your-dna-in-2023/.

Michael Strauss presents "Descendancy Research: Another Pathway to Genealogy"
Breaking through the challenges of brick walls has never been more rewarding; genealogists are often taught that the only way to do successful research is to search backwards through time; going back as far as you can. This lecture assumes a new focus on doing research by tracing all of the descendants of an ancestral couple to present; as we will examine the methodology to find living persons who may hold the key to your family history research. Focus is also given to provide an actual case study of doing this kind of research.

Michael L. Strauss, AG has been employed as a forensic investigator for thirty years, most recently he works as a research manager for Ancestry ProGenealogists. Michael is a native of Pennsylvania and a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. He is a court qualified expert witness in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Michael is a national genealogical lecturer and instructor and is a faculty member at Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP), and the Institute of Genealogical and Historical Research (IGHR) where he coordinates the military history and research courses.

I was looking forward to that BIGS meeting with Josh Taylor, but have noticed that it will conflict with our own meeting. Bummer! I was looking forward to his ideas and predictions. -v

I was looking forward to that BIGS meeting with Josh Taylor, but have noticed that it will conflict with our own meeting. Bummer! I was looking forward to his ideas and predictions. -v

While discussing different ways to privatize, we saw a demo of screenshotting and using the blur function. Nadine Guilbault: How much does it cost for Awesome screenshots? [Answer: free. Most of them are, whether browser add-ons or standalone applications such as Flameshot https://flameshot.org/]. Nadine Guilbault: Thank you. Maureen Trotter: https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/.

Ed Vandehey: For the people that you had privatized, do you think it would reveal too much by putting "private (male)" or "private (female)"?

Janis Littlefield: what and when is the next study group? [Next Study Group (Members Only) will be Monday evenings 6 pm Pacific. We have not yet decided on a start date in February or March. We'll study Research Like A Pro With DNA].

Ed Vandehey: Grandson 1 of son 2 for ancestor Bill Smith, could you use "Bill Smith M2 M1"? Maureen Trotter: Ed, whether that would work would depend on how complex your argument is. If there are lots of people and a complex situation, readers will get lost very quickly. If the sex of the match is important to a part of your proof argument, perhaps you could mention it then. Ed Vandehey: Good point, Maureen. Thank you. Maureen Trotter: Sometimes colour coding cells of a descendancy chart pink or blue might work. Lorraine Hladik: That works in a chart and maybe in excel. 


Anna Lowe: Have you looked at IL land domain with IL state archives. VZ: I have not, but that is now on my list of more research I need to do on my William McBee, and my McBee branch. 

Sylvia Nelson: Diahan Southard, in her Legacy webinar, used the color dots she created in her spreadsheet. It was a very good webinar and free for a few more days, but always available with a Legacy membership.

Michael Strauss presents "Descendancy Research: Another Pathway to Genealogy"
Breaking through the challenges of brick walls has never been more rewarding; genealogists are often taught that the only way to do successful research is to search backwards through time; going back as far as you can. This lecture assumes a new focus on doing research by tracing all of the descendants of an ancestral couple to present; as we will examine the methodology to find living persons who may hold the key to your family history research. Focus is also given to provide an actual case study of doing this kind of research.

Michael L. Strauss, AG has been employed as a forensic investigator for thirty years, most recently he works as a research manager for Ancestry ProGenealogists. Michael is a native of Pennsylvania and a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. He is a court qualified expert witness in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Michael is a national genealogical lecturer and instructor and is a faculty member at Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP), and the Institute of Genealogical and Historical Research (IGHR) where he coordinates the military history and research courses.
