    "Researching Techniques for 3 WVGS Counties - Putnam, Clay & Clark"

     by

    Tony Barger, Pat Wilkinson & Dalanne Miller


    Monday, February 13, 2017

        6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

       VCPL Rooms A, B & C

    6:00 p.m. - Refreshments & Socializing


    The WVGS is made up of 10 counties, 7 in Indiana and 3 in Illinois. The “Research Techniques" program will highlight the research tips, resources and genealogical holdings of these three distinct counties - Putnam, Clay and Clark - focusing mainly on the libraries.   The knowledgeable presenters will provide helpful guidance in researching your ancestors in these counties.

     
    Tony Barger has been 
    working as an archivist for the Putnam County Public Library for almost four years. My current title is Head of Local History and Genealogy. Prior to this position Tony was a graduate student at Indiana University getting his masters in Library Science. While working on his masters at Indiana University he also held positions with the IU archives where he both processed collections and digitized materials for their on-line digital collections.

    Pat Wilkinson have been a member of the Clay County Genealogy Society since 1986.  She has served as president, vice-president, and secretary over the years and will be the treasurer in 2017.  Pat have been writing and publishing the 16-page quarterly newsletter for over twenty years.  She has been a member of WVGS since 2009 and attended the Legacy classes. Pat has created a genealogy book of her ancestors using Legacy. Pat received her B.S. and M.S. in English and Library Science from Indiana State University.  She taught in the school system for over 33 years. Besides genealogy Pat enjoys gardening, reading, mushroom hunting, traveling, and spending time with my family.    

    Dalanne Miller visited the Clark County Genealogical Library in 1993 when her first child was 6 months old. She was just beginning to research her father's family. Her daughter, son and 2nd daughter grew up in the library. After 6 to 7 years of doing personal research she began to help out by taking books home to index. She indexed for several years and began helping out in the library itself at the request of Mrs. Velma Remlinger. In 2006 she stepped away from volunteering to work a full time job. She gave up that job in 2012 and went back to volunteering at the library. As time went on and the oldest volunteers passed away she stepped up and began coming in almost every week to fulfill research requests, retrieve data from the courthouse, make copies, & help visitors to the library. In 2009 her uncle who was the sitting president of the Clark Co Historical Society asked her to find out how many places people were buried within the county. She began while working her full time job with Anderson Township as she also worked alongside the Clark Co Highway Dept. These men, from all over the county, were instrumental in her research. Her cemetery project got the attention of the Highway Superintendent who then sent the men out to mark the locations of these cemeteries with GPS. We now know of 151 burial sites within the county and has rumors of more to be found. During that time she also undertook re-transcribing the Marshall Cemetery. It was first done in 1972-3 but the listings were alphabetized. She not only corrected mistakes found but updated the data and made a new book. The burials are now in order with their lots and sections with maps to locate individual graves.

    "She Came From Nowhere..." 

    A Case Study Approach To A Difficult Genealogical Problem

     by

    Michael Lacopo


    Monday, March 13, 2017

        6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

       VCPL Rooms A, B & C

    6:00 p.m. - Refreshments & Socializing

    This lecture illustrates the joys and pitfalls of Virginia research as well as employing a problem-solving approach utilizing social history, female research and family analysis to identify the parents of Elizabeth Stith, the ancestor "from nowhere." One need not have Virginia ancestors to see the Genealogical Proff Standard at Work!

    Dr. Michael D. Lacopo was born and raised in northern Indiana surrounded by extended family always willing to tell tall tales. Intrigued by his maternal family’s claim to be kinfolk of Abraham Lincoln, and his paternal family’s stories of murder and mayhem, he took to genealogical research in 1980 to substantiate these family stories. Genealogical research as a hobby was in its infancy in the 1980s. Combing libraries, archives, cemeteries and courthouses as a teenager, Michael gained the skills needed to become a keen researcher. His first major challenge in the world of research was tackled by finding his adopted mother’s birth parents in 1982. You can read about this adventure at his blog at Roots4U.blogspot.com with some engaging story-telling, plot twists and new findings!

    Although a budding genealogist in the 1980s, Michael completed his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1991, while still spending time honing his research skills. As befitting a doctor, Michael treats his genealogicalresearch as he would medicine – carefully, methodically and completely. Several genealogical journal articles and publications appeared along the way. In 2013, Michael retired from his medical careerto pursue genealogical research full-time as a profession.

    He has contributed to numerous periodicals and has helped numerous people in their quests to locate their relatives – living and dead. He appeared in USA Today in 2000 discussing genealogy and the proposed destruction of the federal census tabulated in that year. His national lecturing began in Sacramento, CA, at the National Genealogical Society’s national conference in 2004, and has continued with several local, state, national, and international conference speaking engagements to this present day.

    Michael's interests and strengths include Mennonite research, German and Swiss research, especially as it pertains to the 18th century immigration to America, among many other topics. He makes many trips throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states chasing ancestors in primary repositories, and also devotes a considerable amount of time to European research, being proficient in reading German script. Having ancestors from many geographic locales as well as immigrants spanning the 17th century to the 20th century, Michael has a wide variety of proficiencies. He believes that as genealogists we should tell the tales or our ancestors and is a vocal proponent for learning the social history that interweaves our ancestors into the fabric of the past.

    In addition to his story-telling and educational blog, Michael’s presence can be found online at www.Roots4U.com, or for more up-to-date lecture and research information, at his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Roots4U.

    Legacy is a family history computer program that makes it extremely easy to store your genealogical information.  Legacy keeps track of names, dates, places, events, notes, photographs and much more all in an intuitive manner that allows seeing the big picture of your entire family.  In addition, Legacy enables you to display your family data in a variety of attractive and easily understood formats.  Editing and adding new information is simple and understandable.

    Individuals interested in participating in the class can register by submitting your name, home phone number, home address and e-mail address to Joy McPheeters at ejmmcpheeters@gmail.com or call 812-420-1121 Leave Message.  Class size is limited, so register now.
