Event Description:
THE BRICK WALL
 
Jo Carolyn Beebe & Art Frenz, 4 Sessions, Thursday, July 12 - August 2, 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm
 
This course will be presented by two volunteers who have uncovered genealogical data (domestic and international) over several decades. The onset of the course will cover some of the obvious sources of information and how to mine it, manually and/or digitally.
 
The primary objective of the class is to help those who have some experience with collecting data about ancestors but may have hit the “Brick Wall.” If you are willing to share a summary what you have done so far, we (meaning course leaders & class members) might be able to offer suggestions and tools that would help you get through the wall or at least over the current hurdle. For those interested in using the Web, we can initiate online searches in the class as time permits. Hopefully, you will get possible ideas about where to go next in your research. And in this ever changing era of databases and online indexes (off-line and on-line), the class, as a whole, will stimulate each other with new ideas and sources of useful information.  While this is not intended to be a “Gen 101 – Introduction to Genealogy,” beginners are welcome.
 
Jo Carolyn Anderson Beebe has been doing genealogy research for "a number" of years. (You must always mention your maiden name; how else can you connect to fifth cousins twice removed?) She is a member of historical and genealogical societies in Mississippi and a member of the Ellis Island Foundation. She has contributed articles to genealogy magazines and has written a family history book. In 2014 she had her DNA tested and so far she has been matched with 6,285 relatives.
 
Art’s professional background was computer technology, software development and support. He retired to the “Top of Georgia” in 2009 and remains a technology enthusiast. One of his hobbies is to learn more about multi-vendor platforms, including free and open source computer software. Art has been involved in genealogy for over 20 years collecting roots from three continents.
