Make Those Skeletons Dance: Exploring Your Family's Dark Side
by Lisa Alzo, MFA

How well do you really know your ancestors? Most of us want to believe our ancestors were hard-working, noble, or "salt-of-the-earth" types. We want to like them, and even brag about them. However, if we go back far enough, we all can dig up a few proverbial "skeletons in the closet." This session will show you how to research and write about the black sheep in your family tree.

Lisa A. Alzo, MFA, is a freelance writer, instructor, and internationally recognized lecturer, specializing in Slovak/Eastern European genealogical research, writing your family history, and using the Internet to trace female and immigrant ancestors. She is the author of nine books and numerous magazine articles. An avid genealogist for more than 22 years, Lisa also chronicles her family history adventures on her blog, The Accidental Genealogist for more information.

Pandemics & Epidemics: Issues of Politics, Economy, and Religion
by Jean Wilcox Hibben, PhD


Epidemics, and Pandemics all affected our ancestors, either directly or indirectly. Lifestyles were altered by major illnesses. Politics, religion, and economics all played a part in eradicating these scourges from our predecessors' lives, as well as how they affect your research. Funeral and cemetery records, as well as the ways of handling the dead, will also be discussed.

Jean Wilcox Hibben, PhD, MA, Board Certified genealogist, has been involved in family research for 30+ years. She is secretary of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, president of the SoCal Chapter of APG, and president of the Corona Genealogical Society. Jean is director of the Corona CA Family History Center, and a volunteer at NARA, Pacific Region, Riverside County. Follow Jean at circlemending.org.
