Whitman County Genealogical Society
is hosting a seminar featuring
Janet Camarata and Winona Laird from Genealogy Training Center.
“Extra! Extra! I Found It In the Newspaper!”
Winona teaches how to access a variety of historical newspapers to see your ancestors as part of a larger community. Newspaper records include announcements, obituaries, anniversaries, legal notices, letters to the editor, social columns filled with personal news of the daily experiences and lives of your family and their neighbors.
Winona has been doing genealogy for over 60 years. When she retired she became a Professional Genealogist. She is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, and Federation of Genealogy Societies.
“Timelines, Chronologies, and Collateral Lines”
Janet will show how to use a variety of methods to better understand the lives of our ancestors. One method is the use of timelines and/or chronologies to summarize a person’s life, demonstrate how lives interconnect, point out problems and areas for further research, and help in writing a memoir, family history or obituary.
Janet is currently President of South King County Genealogical Society (SKCGS). She is a seminar presenter and trainer in genealogy societies across Washington and her specialties are Teaching and Lecturing on genealogy.
