Session 2: “She Bore her Suffering with Christian Fortitude”: Using Religions Newspapers and Periodicals. Denominational newspapers are incredible sources as they often contain obituaries and biographical information decades before traditional community newspapers did so. Learn where to find these gems, what they contain, and how to use them.
Session 3: “I am Poor, Obscure, Plain, and Little.” Researching the Invisible Ancestors. If your ancestors had little money, they did not buy and sellland, they did not leave wills or probates, they did not purchase stones for graves. How do you find them? This lecture will show you how!
Session 4: Magnificent, Magical, Mesmerizing Manuscript Collections. These types of records form an enormous part of most archival collections, yet most genealogists grossly underutilize them. This lecture will help you locate them, understand what information they can yield and use them to break down brick walls!
Dr. Michael D. Lacopo is a retired small-animal veterinarian and professional genealogist born and raised in northern Indiana.
