PUTTING YOUR ANCESTORS IN THEIR PLACE…AND TIME:
TIMELINES, CHRONOLOGIES, AND CALCULATORS
To understand an ancestor’s life, genealogists use timelines, chronologies, and online calculators to summarize a life and identify interconnected historical events. These methods are not to be missed as they can show us how ancestors are interconnected with each other; how their lives are connected to history; identifies discrepancies and inconsistencies; reveals additional areas for further research; and will ease the work of writing a memoir, a family history, or an obituary.
Jefferson County Genealogical Society (JCGS) www.wajcgs.org has invited Professional Genealogist, Janet Camarata, to be their speaker during a full-day Seminar on Saturday, September 17, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Tri-Area Community Center, 10 W. Valley Rd, Chimacum. A donation of $10.00 for the full-day Seminar is suggested. Janet’s topic “Putting Your Ancestors in Their Place…and Time: Timelines, Chronologies and Calculators” will demonstrate how these methods worked to help understand a family’s mid-1800s migration from Kentucky to Missouri to Kansas. Members and friends of JCGS are invited to learn about Timelines and Chronologies in the morning, while in the afternoon Janet will present Calculating Our Ancestors’ Lives that compares the life of your ancestor with your own life using online tools for computing inflation, cousins, distance, weather, etc. Bring your own lunch; coffee/tea/water will be available. In addition Heritage Books will be on site offering for sale a large selection of genealogy books and other items for family history researchers.
Janet O’Conor Camarata tells her family’s stories using all the benefits of genealogy, history, the internet and the latest computing tools. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and is an experienced instructor.
