    The Family History Writers' Special Interest Group is schedule to meet at the Vigo County Public Library on ten consecutive Tuesdays from January through October 2016.  During the winter months the class will meet in the afternoon and  in the evenings during the summer months.  Those unable to attend a meeting will be able to keep in contact through a FreeForums account set up for our group by the library.

    If you are interested in joining this special interest group, please email wvgs@inwvgs.org

    Anna Sayers, VCPL Special Collections Manager, "would encourage individuals from every writing level to come to the class. Those without much experience will be able to start from the ground up with other writers, and those with more experience can share their writing to get valuable feedback.  It’s important to remember writing is never going to be perfect on the first attempt. It takes time, but it does get easier with experience. 

    Anna also states "Many people are intimidated at the thought of writing creatively. Telling a creative story about your family’s history can be even more overwhelming. Not only is it important to include the correct genealogical information, but it is just as important that the narrative is compelling to the reader. Here, attendees will have the ability to learn about different ways they can go about creating a creative family history piece, they will be able to workshop their writings with like-minded individuals to find out what works well and what may need improvement, and they will be able to bounce ideas off of each other."

     "Before & After 1858: English & Welsh Wills and Death Records"

    Live Webinar by

    George Morgan


    Monday, June 13, 2016

        6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

      VCPL Rooms A, B & C

      Refreshments & Socializing 6:00 p.m. 

    Wills and probate records have been handled differently in England and Wales over the centuries. Prior to 1858, wills were probated in ecclesiastical courts. Parliament passed legislation that converted probate to a civil process beginning in 1858.

    This seminar discusses how to research wills and related records in both periods and where they can be located.

    George G. Morgan is an internationally-recognized genealogy expert, author, and lecturer. He is the prolific author of twelve books and literally hundreds of magazine, journal, and online articles in the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, and Singapore. He has held many offices within the Federation of Genealogical Societies, Florida State Genealogical Society and the Florida Genealogical Society (Tampa). He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and more than a dozen societies in the U.S. and UK.

    George G. Morgan is the president and primary speaker of Aha! Seminars, Inc. This is a Tampa Bay-based company that provides training to library personnel and to genealogists since 1996.  The Genealogy Guys, George G. Morgan and Drew Smith, are the hosts of the Genealogy GuysSM Podcast.  This is a weekly one-hour discussion about genealogy news, events, people, issues, resources, tips, techniques, technology, book and software reviews, and a wide variety of other genealogy-related ideas currently on their minds.

    George is an avid genealogist. His interest began at age ten when his paternal grandmother and aunt divulged the family history extending back before the American Revolution. Since that time, George's genealogical research has expanded to include all the branches of his family tree and he has investigated leads in materials in all sorts of places. Libraries, archives, courthouse, and cemeteries are among his favorite haunts, but he will leave no stone unturned, even to the point of tracking down the original 1914 newspapers containing his great-grandparents' obituaries in a records retention facility owned by a county board of education. He is a master in working with and understanding all types of genealogical record types in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. With the advent of electronic research materials, he has become a recognized expert in using software programs, databases, Internet resources, online databases, Internet genealogical mailing lists and message boards, search engines, directories, subscription databases, and all the major online services around the world.
