About the presenter

JaneRollins-144x144Jane Neff Rollins began researching her family history when genealogy research required going to the Family History Library in person, and hand scrolling microfilm. The first time she recognized her great-grandfather's family on the 1900 census, she burst into tears. Although she specializes in researching those with Eastern European Jewish ancestry, her clients have diverse backgrounds, including those with roots in colonial America. Jane speaks, reads, and writes Russian and French, and has transliterated 19th century Russian language census, business directory, and vital records entries for online databases over the last 20 years. Jane has a substantial personal collection of late 19th and early 20th century family photographs, some of which were taken by ancestors who were professional photographers both in Russia and the United States. She studied costume design in college and worked as a costumer/assistant designer for the Portland Opera Company. Her knowledge of fashion helps her determine when and where your family photographs may have been taken. As an epidemiologist and medical writer, Jane's knowledge of health and medicine enables her to interpret the significance of DNA test results. Jane has spoken professionally about genealogy since 2012, and has since given genealogy lectures throughout the U.S. and abroad. Jane's genealogical writing has appeared in RootsKey, the newsletter of the Jewish Genealogical Society – Los Angeles. She is also the author of the upcoming book, Health Care Navigation 101: Make the Health Care System Work for You. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Guild, the National Genealogical Society and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles.

Register for Tuesday's BCG Webinar - Civil Law Notaries: Using Notarial Records to Build a Family History by Melanie D. Holtz, CG

Register

Notarial records are a valuable resource in those areas of the world where civil law notaries recorded all legal transactions. Property deeds [land, personal, or agricultural], mortgages, wills, dowries, late birth registrations, marriage permissions, and many other types of documents can be found within this record set. These records often provide key details about a family, their relationships, and financial transactions which cannot be found within any other type of genealogical resource.

Understanding the procedures behind the preparation of these documents is key to understanding their method of conservation, the formats the documents will be found in, and the contents therein. This lecture will provide examples of several Italian and French documents that were particularly descriptive and which provided key details on the families being researched.

Join us and Melanie D. Holtz, CG for the live webinar, hosted by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 8pm Eastern U.S. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. Before joining, please visit www.java.com to ensure you have the latest version of Java which our webinar software requires.

About the presenter

Macenteethomas-144What happens when a "tech guy" with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who's also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more.

Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to "re-purpose today's technology for tomorrow's genealogy."

Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
