When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

Did you hear about our new In-Brief? Christine Woodcock has written “An In-Brief Guide to Turning Your Family Tree into a Family Treasure”. As the family historian, you have collected a cornucopia of research documents: bits of scrap paper, newspaper clippings, photos, obits, e-mails and other assorted bits of “research”. What can you do to preserve these documents and the stories they tell for future generations? Turn your family tree information into a treasured family heirloom, a family history book. In this In-Brief, Christine shares tips on how to start, develop the content, interview relatives, share your own story, and determine your book format. There are also recommended websites, publishers, and resource books within the guide.

Sadly, we will not be attending RootsTech this year. If you are attending, please show your support for our many writers and teachers that will be there as Ambassadors and as Presenters. Past and present writers that will be presenters include Lara Diamond, Lisa Alzo, Jenny Joyce, Jennifer Holik, Michelle Goodrum, and Maureen Taylor. Check out the schedule of classes at https://www.rootstech.org/schedule so that you do not miss a single one!

In this issue of Going In-Depth Magazine...

  • Blue and Gray Trails: “Did Your Civil War Ancestor Experience the Unthinkable?” Losing a limb was a devastating consequence of war for many soldiers. Reentering civilian life with a disability proved as challenging as their military experience. Here’s how some veterans coped.By Cindy Freed
  • Unexceptional Ancestors: “Victor Levy” Victor Levy was an unexceptional forgotten ancestor. In this article, Jenny demonstrates methods she uses to add flesh to the bare bones of hitherto unresearched family members. By Jenny Cowen
  • Heimatbote: “W├╝rttemberg Family Tables” More genealogists than ever before are discovering these registers, but there is a lack of instruction on what exactly to look for on the documents. Not only can these wonderful records save the researcher vast amounts of time, they often reveal details about a family not found anywhere else in parish registers. By Ute Brandenburg
  • Ramblings through Irish History: “The Plantations of Ireland Part 7: The 1641 Rebellion” In this article, Jenny takes us through further Irish history as the Catholics of Ireland finally rise up against the protestant settlers. By Jenny Joyce
  • Modus Operandi: “Find Your Answer-Using a Research Plan” Are you falling down too many rabbit holes or chasing too many squirrels? A well thought out Research Plan will help focus your attention and save you from the holes and the chase! By Cheri Hudson Passey
  • Ladies First: “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” This column investigates the working lives of our female ancestors, covering both paid employment and household tasks. Until very recent times, housework was indisputably women’s work. This article looks at some of the cleaning methods of our ancestresses. By Janet Few
Taught by Gena Philibert-Ortega
Class: March 4, 2018 - March 31, 2018
Finding female ancestors can be challenging at best. With name changes and a lack of records, female ancestors seem to all but disappear. However, finding women in your family tree starts with an understanding of the methodology needed to conduct good family history research. In this 4 week course we will explore that methodology by first discussing how researching women is different. We’ll take some cues from historians who research women combined with genealogical sources to better understand where to find the documents that list women. As we close we will explore researching women from different ethnic backgrounds. This 4 week course is for those who need more help in researching and more importantly, finding female ancestors. At just $99 it's a great deal!
