2012 Conference of the Genealogical Society of Marion County

November 17, 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center


The Genealogical Society of Marion County & the Indiana Historical Society are partnering to present the 2012 GSMC Conference.


Certified genealogist, Jana Broglin will present four lectures:


America's Expansion: The Ohio Country: 1783-1812

From the end of the Revolutionary War to the beginning of the War of 1812, the United States was challenged with expansion. With the Northwest Territory new problems arose with governing the area and selling the land. Learn about the new land ordinances, skirmishes, settlements, and finding aids for genealogical research in the early Ohio Country.


Isn't that Special?

There is more to the federal census than the population schedules. This lecture discusses the special census authorized by the federal government; state schedules; statistical schedules; and the use of the recapitulation of these schedules. The special census adds to the information about the ancestor, from the crops he grows, slaves he owns, his military service, and to his death.


See ya in the Funnies

There is more to a newspaper than just the comic section. Find clues to vital records, probate court record, and land records. Learn how to add social history to your ancestor’s lives by using the local newspaper.


Hookers, Crooks, and Kooks

Each of us wants to ignore that scalawag, that counterfeiter, or that madam in our family, but the black sheep may prove the most interesting of all. Examine clues in unusual and also common sources, and learn how they lead to locating more records. Topics include: Family tradition, Census records, court records, and military records
