Title: Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker: Using Occupational Records
Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 8:00 pm Central
Description: Our ancestors’ occupations are a way of identifying them. Exploring records created about occupation and employment can yield specific information about the ancestor, help place the ancestor in historical and social context, and spark ideas for further research.
Amy Johnson Crow is a Certified Genealogist and an active lecturer and author. Her roots run deep in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states. She earned her Masters degree in Library and Information Science at Kent State University. Amy loves to help people discover the joys of learning about their ancestors. She figures that if anyone were to steal her phone, the thief would probably be alarmed at the number of tombstone photos on it. She blogs regularly at AmyJohnsonCrow.com.
Registration Procedure: There are only 500 available "seats" for each webinar and we have limited the number of registrations for each webinar to 650. Past experience has shown that approximately 30% of those who register don't attend a webinar.
Recommendation: login to the webinar EARLY - access begins at 7:30 pm Central. Once the "room" fills up with 500 attendees, others attempting to join will receive a "room full" message.
Recording and Handout Available to ISGS Members: For ISGS members who cannot attend the live webinar on September 13th, a recording of the webinar, along with the handout, will be made available in the Members Section of the ISGS website at http://ilgensoc.org/members.php.
