    Heading out for a genealogy research trip without some serious planning doesn’t make sense. It can lead to a nonproductive trip and total frustration. Hear tips on how to plan, things to think about and how to be ready for research upon arrival at your destination, no matter where your going.

    Ann Wells is a professional genealogist who has been researching for more than 30 years. She is an active member of a number of genealogical societies and current president of McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society. Ann was born in England, raised in California, and has resided in the Chicago area for the last 25 years. Teaching genealogy is as much of a passion as doing genealogical research.

    "Jewish Heritage 

    in Indiana"

         presented by

         Jeannie Regan-Dinius

     

               Monday, May 12, 2014

              6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

           VCPL Rooms A, B & C

           Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

    When most people think of Jewish immigrants into Indiana, they think of middle to late 19th century or even 20th century eastern Europeans coming into the capital city.  A 2005 survey of those sites related to the impact that people of the Jewish faith had on Indiana shows a history are longer and widespread.  The first “wave” of Jewish immigrants began as early as the 1760s when Jewish traders settled in the territory.  These settlers were, in general, men who assimilated into the dominant Christian culture.  Other Jews came around statehood in 1816:  Vincennes had settlers by the mid-1820s; Rising Sun’s community was established in 1824; Terre Haute had settlers as early as 1827. 


    Jeannie Regan-Dinius, Director of Special initiatives with the Department of Natural Resources - Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology will discuss the longstanding and important part that Jews have played in the development of Indiana cities.  The state’s plans to update all National Register listings with the relevant history, update all National Register districts to describe any Jewish presence, and write new nominations for individual structures and districts.  Finally, the DHPA plans to collaborate with other state agencies to include this history in interpretation, packets for teachers, and educating all Hoosiers.


    Jeannie R. Regan-Dinius, Director of Special Initiatives, has a life-long interest in history, family history, and research.  She earned her Bachelors in Public History from Ball State University , where she studied also anthropology and American Studies.  She has her Masters in Urban Pl anning and Information Management/Library Science from Indiana University-Purdue Universityat Indianapolis with additional graduate course work in public history.

    Before coming to the State, she was the Executive Director of a 96-acre historic park in Huntington, IN. 

     She came to the state in 2000 to help work on the Underground Railroad research initiative.  She was given the additional responsibility of the Cemetery Registry, the Historic Theater Initiative, and public outreach.

    Deconstructing Your Family Tree: Re-evaluating the “Evidence”

    by

     Dr. Michael D. Lacopo

    Saturday, May 17, 2014
    10:00 a.m. - Noon
    $10.00, $8.00 IHS Members

    When information passed on from researcher to researcher doesn't  "add up," it's time to tear down the walls and build anew.  This methodology lecture shows how erroneous conclusions can sneak into our research uncontested.  This lecture is pertinent especially today with so many Internet family trees that get cut and pasted into our own research.

    Dr. Michael D. Lacopo is a retired small-animal veterinarian born and raised in northern Indiana. He takes a scientific approach to his research as he does to his profession. Researching since 1980, he has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. A self-described “all-American mutt,” his research skills cover a broad range.

    $10; members $8. Includes parking and same-day admission to the Indiana Experience

    This class is eligible for 2 general LEUs.

    Cemetery Preservation Workshops

    Spring Valley Cemetery, Lawrence (Indianapolis)
    Instructors: John “Walt” Walters, Jeannie Regan-Dinius, Vincent T. Hernly and Sheila Riley
    Cost: $30, $25 IHS members, $22.50 Local History Partners (includes lunch during full day)

    Meets AASLH StEPs Standard HSL 5

    There are no state laws that describe the techniques for preservation of cemeteries and gravestones, but there are best practices and standards to meet to assure that you are preserving the site in a way that will not eventually lead to damage. Each year the Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology co-sponsors with the Indiana Historical Society a series of workshops to teach the skills needed in cemetery preservation.

    Who should attend?
    Anyone interested in caring for a cemetery. Whether you are doing the work yourself or working with a group to see that a cultural site is maintained and preserved. Members of the community interested in the personal and historical significance of cemeteries will have the opportunity to learn about and maintain. First-timers as well as those with previous experience can gain hands-on experience in keeping history.

    Workshop I is a two-day workshop offered every spring. Topics include Indiana cemetery laws, stone types, symbolism, stone cleaning, tablet straightening, probing instructions, and cemetery maintenance. This workshop is a combination of classroom lectures, in-the-field and hands-on work. The 2014 workshop is tentatively scheduled for May 30-31. Attendance to both days of the workshop is required to apply for a probing license.

    Workshop II Workshop II (Workshop I or equivalent training is required before attending this workshop) Workshop II is a one-day session which focuses on advanced cemetery preservation techniques, including fixing breaks, resetting obelisks, and how to mix stone dust to fill in cracks. The entire workshop will be spent in the cemetery, where participants will gain more hands-on experience repairing stones. The 2014 workshop is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 22-23. Please check back for registration information.

    These workshops are funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service Historic Preservation Fund, administered by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology.
