The Southern California Genealogical Society will present “The Ancestor Deep-Dive” at 9 p.m. Too often our research is driven by sources. We look for an ancestor in all the sources we’ve heard about, and we only break new ground when we hear about new ones. This class will teach a methodology for creating a research plan centered around the *discoveries* we want to make, not the *pathways* we think are available for getting there. The first half of the presentation will cover how to generate an answer-centric research plan. The remainder will show how we work backwards from our desired answers to determine what sources might contain the elusive information.

Thursday, November 17
The Florida State Genealogy Society will present “Using Civil War Pension Records” at 8 p.m. The U.S. Civil War involved most of the families in the country at that time. It was a traumatic era in our history, but the records created from the pension files can provide a wealth of information. Case studies of actual pension files will show examples of the data in the files and how to analyze the information to develop a plan to further research.

Friday, November 18
Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Nature & Nurture – Family History for Adoptees” at 2 p.m. Two sisters, one adopted and one not, discuss the underlying concepts of genealogy for adoptees and their families. Come learn the difference between nature and nurture genealogy. The adoptee’s biological “nature” family history, enhanced by careful use of DNA testing, can fill in blanks where records can’t and help adoptees better understand their biological origin. The adoptive family’s history can help explain the formative “nurture” foundation of an adoptee’s life and create connections with adoptive family members and the adoptive family narrative.
