Your Family History Starts in Duluth, Georgia

Georgia Family History Expo November 9-10, 2012

Alabama genealogy professional and author Robert S. Davis, M.Ed, MA  will reveal the “Secrets to Research in Georgia” at the Georgia Family History Expo Nov. 9-10 at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga.

Davis is director of the Genealogy Program of Wallace State Community College, Hanceville, Ala. The historian has more than 1,000 publications on records and research to his credit. He will kick off the Expo at 2 p.m. Friday in the Gwinnett Center Ballroom.

“We’re so lucky to have such an experienced historian address us at this Expo,” Family History Expos Founder and President Holly T. Hansen said. “We’ve got a spectacular lineup at this event and I couldn’t be happier.”

On Friday, 6:30 p.m., Davis will lecture on, “The Secrets to Research in Alabama.” At 7:50 p.m. he will present a course titled, “Crossing the Great Divide: Little Known Federal Sources for Place of Birth before 1850.”

Davis will return on Saturday to teach Expo participants about “Research in the War of 1812 in the Deep South.” At 11:20 a.m. he will discuss “The Thirteenth Colony: Exploring the Colonial Georgia Records.”

Featured speaker Paul Adjei, CEO at Worldbiz Business, lives in Kumasi-Ghana. He collects and preserves oral genealogical data and is currently preserving the history of one of the most powerful tribes in West Africa called the Akan. He manages 20 field staff members performing research on this tribe. Adjei will address the topic of African roots at 6:30 p.m. Friday for all levels of family historians. The course description of “Africa the Root of Our Ancestors” notes, “As you begin your journey back to the root of your ancestors you will find oral history is one of the key resources on both sides of the ocean.”

On Saturday at 10 a.m. Adjei will offer a lecture titled “Echoes from Africa.” This course will help participants discover the kinds of roots available to assist researchers of African Roots.

At 2:30 p.m. on Saturday Adjei will team up with Bernard E. Gracy, Jr. for a panel discussion titled, “Unlock Your Ancestry with DNA and Oral History.” The discussion will focus on DNA research and oral history highlighting new strategies to discovering ancestral roots.

Gracy is the external chief technology officer and vice president of business development at Pitney Bowes. He has a master’s degree in computer science and a master’s in e-commerce. In addition to his work as a Fortune 500 executive, he is an accomplished genealogist.

Expo participants will also be treated to lectures from a wide variety of other professional genealogists and family historians including (but certainly not limited to) the following:

  • “Where Do I Start?” by Billy Dubois Edgington for beginning family historians
  • “Georgia Land, Maps and Technology,” by Jennifer Dondero
  • “Reading Old Style Handwriting,” by Sharon D. Monson
  • “German Church and Civil Records,” by Fritz Juengling, Ph.D.
  • “Using the Neighbors to Find Your Ancestors,” by Monica L. Hopkins

Hansen will share her personal research magic during a closing keynote address in the ballroom on Saturday at 3:50 p.m. She will also draw for door prizes offered by sponsors and supporters of the event.

“At a time when the Georgia Governor has decided to close state archives to the public, it is more important than ever before that we come together in numbers and talk about the importance of the preservation of records and public access to them,” Hansen said.

The cost to attend this two-day event is just $89 with pre-registration and $110 at the door. Pay only $60 for one day. Onsite registration will begin and the exhibit hall will open at 1 p.m. on Friday. The event will close at 9 p.m. Exhibits and registration will re-open at 9 a.m. on Saturday. The exhibit hall will close at 4 p.m. Prizes donated by exhibitors will be given away both days and Grand Prizes donated by sponsors will be given away at the closing ceremony. This event is sponsored by Family History Expos and supported by FamilySearch.

    A quoi sert vraiment cette tirade de Jeune Afrique a l’encontre du President Gbagbo. Je ne vois pas en quoi cela serait une information necessaire, si ce n’est pour le disqualifier et faire croire qu’il est entre les mains de manipulateur fussent ils religieux. Aux yeux de Jeune Afrique l’information se veut negative, disqualifiante, une intention de nuire. A qui en fait s’adresse t’elle ?, j’ai du mal a trouver un ou des destinataires. Se faire mousser peut etre une piste. Cordialement Alain Monier

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I like how it is visible that you made a lot of time and effort in research. I hate it when I read on postings that are 550 words long but are deficient in substance. It’s like they just want to wind you in and they are not really giving out something good. So thanks a lot! coupon codes airbnb

Thank you for such simple and inspiring motivation.

    Although in theory what Andy says makes sense, and is so eloquently stated, my personal experience is that married sex is best.

    Great post made here. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that most professional career fields consider the Bachelors Degree as the entry level requirement for an online college degree. Even though Associate Diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing your current Bachelors opens up many entrance doors to various employment goodies, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online versions of their degree programs but usually for a considerably higher price than the firms that specialize in online course plans. coupon codes avis rent a car
