Juneteenth–How Emancipation Came to Texas and How We Celebrate—free replay of today's webinar by Sharon Batiste Gillins now available for limited time

2024-06-19-image500blog

The recording of today's webinar by Sharon Batiste Gillins, "Juneteenth–How Emancipation Came to Texas and How We Celebrate” is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

This lecture details the true story of how freedom finally came to Texas more than 2 years after the effective date of the Emancipation Proclamation. Common myths will be replaced with the truth of the events that occurred and the atmosphere of the surrounding Galveston community, including the presence of United States Colored Troops among the Union soldiers who arrived to enforce emancipation for over 300,000 enslaved people of Texas. Finally, it follows the evolution of celebrations of emancipation beginning with spontaneous celebrations that occurred in 1865 on the docks of the Galveston Wharf, to the first documented citywide celebration in Galveston, to today’s recognition of Juneteenth as an important historical event celebrated throughout the nation and even the world.

About the presenter

Sharon Batiste Gillins is a native of Galveston, Texas with paternal ancestral roots in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana and maternal roots in Fort Bend County, Texas. She is a passionate family history researcher who has been actively involved in genealogical research and teaching for more than 25 years. Her professional career spans 40 years in education, retiring as Associate Professor at Riverside Community College, Riverside, California. She frequently delivers lectures and workshops at regional genealogy conferences and national genealogy institutes.

Sharon’s research and teaching focus on African Americans in the 19th Century through the mid-20th century. She emphasizes strategies researchers can use to extract and analyze information from underutilized record sources. Favorite research and lecture topics include the Freedmen’s Bureau, Southern Claims Commission, probate records and Juneteenth history. It is her work with slave-era manuscripts that motivates her desire to encourage more open communication and information exchange between families holding private manuscripts that document the presence of enslavers and/or enslaved people.

A determined gardener, Sharon has learned many lessons from gardening that she applies directly to her work in genealogy.

Editing Your Own Work – Part 2 — free replay of today's BCG webinar by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGG now available for limited time

2024-06-18-image500blog

The recording of today's BCG webinar by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGG, "Editing Your Own Work – Part 2” is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/BCG for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Genealogists write. Their written narratives include stories of ancestral families, biographies of individual ancestors, and explanations supporting genealogical proofs. For their writing to succeed, genealogists—like all effective writers—repeatedly self-edit everything they write. The process results in polished products that the genealogist’s readers will understand, enjoy, and cherish.

Emphasizing genealogical narrative, these two webinars will address the self-editing process. Part 1 will focus on “big-picture” editing, including stages of self-editing; focus; keeping the writer out of the narrative; editing the writing’s overall structure, organization, and flow; and improving major and minor subdivisions of written genealogical narratives, including paragraphing. Part 2 will focus on “nitty-gritty” editing, including capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, spelling, word choice, and reducing word count.
