Ted Bainbridge presents
"Finding Historical Government Boundaries: New Internet Tools"

To search for government records about ancestors one must know which state, county, and other governmental bodies had jurisdiction over the places where events occurred. A powerful new and free internet site easily provides that information for places and dates of interest to any genealogical researcher. The site also provides information about nongovernmental research resources in the area of interest. This presentation gives instructions and shows screen-image examples of the site’s features and the best ways to exploit all the site’s offerings.

The DNA Study Group will meet in the Friendship Room after the general membership meeting and refreshments.

Data Grouping and Cluster Tools:

Glenn York will will examine some of the tools available to help group and cluster your DNA matches. We will discuss the “Leeds Method” and some tools to help you use it. The Leeds method is a process to help identify the line on your family tree for your closest matches. The tools discussed in this presentation will help group or cluster these matches to make analysis easier and more efficient.
