| SESSION 1: 10:00 AM Fact Checking Your Family Traditions Some families are lucky, they have “family lore”. But is this story true? With new online collections we can now double check to see how it holds up to the light of some original records. Only then will you know if it’s a keeper or just fools gold. A case study of colonial Virginia entrepreneur Isaac Perkins/Parkins. |

Session 2: 11:30 AM Using Hinshaw and Other Finding Aids to Locate Original Quaker Records During the past century, Quaker historians and clerks have been busy copying old meeting records and have created a wide variety of finding aids. In the 1930s, Willard W. Hinshaw began publishing six volumes of his historic Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, with Willard C. Heiss following with six volumes for just Indiana. We will learn how these tools can shortcut your search for original Quaker records. $ 20.00 per session members
