Murder and Consequences: A Family Story presented by Ronald V. Gilmore
Thursday, October 13
Murder and Consequences: A Family Story presented by Ronald V. Gilmore  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
A video conference meeting using Zoom. Registration required.
This is a one-hour presentation of a family tragedy wherein two female family members were found guilty of murder and sentenced to death circa 1841 in northern England. Details of the initial research into this saga is presented as we follow the life of one of the women who is transported to Van Diemen’s Land (now called Tasmania), a British penal colony. The saga of the ship’s journey is totally reminiscent to the “Mutiny on the Bounty”. The story collides with some major world history events and personalities that resonate up to the present day. Alert: Not a “How To” and not intended for anyone who might be squeamish or sensitive.  
 
With a strong technical background, Ron pursued a career as a management consultant in IT with major assignments in Canada, USA, and Europe. Retiring in 2010, Ron and his wife, Wendy, bought a golf community home in Sun City Shadow Hills in Indio, California. With generous amounts of spare time now available, Ron turned to genealogy for family investigations in Ireland, UK, France/Germany, and Canada. Ron has presented to the Sun City Shadow Hills Genealogy Club, the Palm Desert Genealogy Club, and the Hemet Genealogical Society on his favorite topic, Ireland.

What the Heck Does That Say? The Challenge of Difficult Handwriting with Pam Vestal  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
A video conference meeting using Zoom. Registration required.
One of the biggest hurdles to overcome in genealogy is the seemingly illegible handwriting in our ancestors’ records. Whether you struggle to navigate colonial penmanship that doesn’t even look like English or wrestle with contemporary documents that are poorly written, a few good strategies can make all the difference.  We’ll look at more than 20 techniques to help you figure out what the chicken scratches on the page say as well as what the style of writing might reveal about our ancestors.
 
Pam Vestal is a professional genealogist and speaker who turned her focus to her longtime love of genealogy after a 20-year writing career. Her articles have appeared in the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly and the FGS's Forum magazine, and her lectures take her from coast to coast.  Pam specializes in conducting genealogical research and then turning that information into illustrated stories that even non-genealogists can enjoy.
 
Registration will open one month prior to the event.
