Genealogy Workshop: Tracing Female Ancestors

Women make up 50 percent of your ancestry, yet their lives, experiences, and even complete names are all too often forgotten by written history. This workshop, presented by Ann Lawthers of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, will help you reclaim their stories by providing resources and strategies for finding maiden names, discussing the road to naturalization for women in the 20th century, and uncovering the types of material and written culture they left behind. The cost of this workshop is $35 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society; $50 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Register online through Eventbrite.com, by printing and mailing the registration form with payment, or by calling 603-228-6688.

Genealogy Workshop: Using Land Records in Family History Research

Land records are an important, but sometimes overlooked resource for many family historians. Hidden in the “metes and bounds” and other legalese, there can be critical clues to identifying extended family members, the location of ancestral homelands, and family relationships. Join the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s Chief Genealogist David Allen Lambert to learn how you can locate, read, and apply the information contained in land records to your own family history. The cost of this workshop is $35 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society; $50 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Register online through Eventbrite.com, by printing and mailing the registration form with payment, or by calling 603-228-6688.

Workshop: Creating Dynamic Cemetery Tours

Few places evoke local history the way cemeteries do, and more and more people have taken to exploring them, hoping to find the stories they contain. Learn about the many ways that local organizations can put together compelling, crowd-pleasing cemetery tours. Some tours will be spooky, some theatrical, some strictly historical, and some high-tech—find the type of tour that’s right for your group and discover how to pull it together for an outstanding community event. The cost of this workshop is $25 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society; $50 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Register online through Eventbrite.com, by printing and mailing the registration form with payment, or by calling 603-228-6688.
