Jamboree 2015 - Meet the Speaker: Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG

Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, the daughter of avid genealogists, was born when her parents were well into their forties. Both sets of grandparents were born in the 1880's, and she enjoyed the stories they would tell of war, the 1918 influenza epidemic, the Depression, and raising a family during frugal times. The love of these ancestors' lives made history a vital part of her life. She is a former Family History Center Director and is a frequent speaker for various groups around the United States.

Ticked Off! Those Pesky Pre-1850 Census Tic Marks
It's exciting when we are able to find our ancestors on every census they appeared on, until we reach 1840 and beyond. Are they throwing us into a dead end, or can they tell us more? This lecture provides a case study following an Eastern Kentucky family back into the area of Germantown, Pennsylvania.

SA018 Saturday June 6, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
School Daze - Finding and Using School Records
Locating school records can be an amazing way of putting our families into place, especially when there may be no vital records available in an area. We may even be somewhat astounded to learn that our ancestors even attended school.

SA041 Saturday June 6, 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Treasure in Township Records
A part of the rectangular survey system, the township had its beginnings in Europe and is still in use today. We will focus on the many types of records of our ancestors that may be found there. Some records may be found there and nowhere else.
