Free genealogy webinars to discuss adoption, lineage societies

Several free webinars will be offered this week covering topics such as: lineage societies, adoption research and religion in early America.

Wisconsin State Genealogy Society will present “Finding Online Resources from Lineage Societies” tonight at 8 p.m. Many of us know that lineage societies have been collecting and preserving family histories for over 125 years, but did you know that some of these treasures can be found for free online? And you don’t even have to be a member to take advantage of them! From the databases and downloadable documents of the DAR, to simple lists of pioneers and soldiers, this webinar will show you what gems are available online and where to find them.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “The Firelands, the Connecticut Western Reserve and the Ohio Territory” on Wednesday, July 19 at 2 p.m. The northeastern lands of Ohio are aptly named “The Firelands”, and “The Western Reserve”. How did they come to be called that? And, what connection do they have to the northeastern states? “Ohio fever” brought a lot of settlers to the state following the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. A section of Ohio named “The Western Reserve” will be of particular interest to those having ties to Connecticut.

Southern California Genealogical Society will present “Early Religious Experience in America” on Wednesday, July 19 at 9 p.m. Genealogists utilize church records all the time to document the births and baptisms, but what did that mean for our ancestors? By understanding the history of religion in early America we can better understand why we can and cannot find the records we seek.
