A Full-Day “Collage” of Genealogy Presentations and Demonstrations
Bring your lunch and stay for the day to learn about multiple aspects of genealogy in this special 2nd Saturday Genealogy event. 
Pamela Lyons Brinegar, CG ® is a Lexington-based, board-certified genealogy researcher, writer, and lecturer specializing in central and eastern Kentucky. She holds an MA in sociocultural anthropology and is executive director emerita of an international association of regulatory officials. Among her topics for this event: House Histories – Whether old or new, houses have stories to tell. Untangling those mysteries requires a combined journalistic/genealogical research approach to draw answers from public records, archives, and many other resources. This session will cover the rapidly growing number of free online images of deeds, estate and tax records, court orders, newspapers, and monographs. Examples of 19th- and 20th-century house histories will illustrate methods for developing your own family stories.
