AAGS Fall Seminar - Migration Patterns of Our Ancestors  (Workshops/Seminars)
Saturday, October 27
9:00 am to 1:00 pm

On Saturday, October 27. 2018, AAGS will hold our Fall Seminar, featuring James Tanner, genealogy blogger and lecturer, speaking on Migration Patterns of Our Ancestors.  James has more than thirty years' experience in law, computers, and over thirty years experience as a research genealogist.

Explore the background and context of historical migration patterns in America that can explain how and why your ancestors settled in a particular area of the United States after immigrating from another country. Since the existence of a migration route is embedded in the historical context of the time, understanding any particular migration route involves a study of both the pertinent history and applicable geography. 
Stay tuned for more details and registration information - coming soon.

Preserving and Sharing the World's Records  (AAGS Meetings)
Thursday, November 1
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Severna Park United Methodist Church, 731 Benfield Blvd., Severna Park, MD

Major genealogy companies have embarked on a profound initiative: to preserve the world’s records that hold genealogical value, and to make them available to researchers in digital format. This is no easy task, and the scope is enormous, too big for any one organization. Carol Kostakos Petranek will discuss her experiences in digital preservation initiatives as a volunteer for MyHeritage in Greece and with FamilySearch at the Maryland Archives.

Carol Kostakos Petranek serves as an assistant director of the Washington, D.C. Family History Center, where she coordinates classes, conferences and community outreach projects. She is a Citizen Archivist at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. and volunteers as a genealogy aide in the Research Room. Carol is the volunteer coordinator for the FamilySearch/Maryland Archive digitization project of probate and estate records, and a volunteer for Greek records preservation at MyHeritage.


Modern Court Records  (Meetings - Other Organizations)
Monday, November 19
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Carroll County Public Library Westminster Branch, 50 East Main Street, Westminster, MD 21157

Speaker: Rachel M. Frazier

While many people use archival records to perform historical and genealogical research, the Mary- land State Archives also holds a large number of modern court records required for legal purposes such as retirement, social security, pension, and expungement. This lecture will deal, not only with the com- plexities of these records (generally beginning in the 1960s and 1970s), but also with the significance of modern court records in social history, social justice, and quality of life.

Ms. Frazier serves as the Search Room coordinator for the Reference Department at the Maryland State Archives, helping to coordinate in-person services for historical and legal research as well as assist- ing through email.
