Louisville Genealogical Society --How NOT to Run a Cemetery: Examples from Louisville and Jefferson  (Conferences & Seminars)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Louisville Genealogical Society--www.kylgs.org

 

Presented by: Professor Phil DiBlasi

 
In the early days of Kentucky, deceased family members were interred in plots on the family farm. As small townships formed, public cemeteries were established. Over the years cemeteries used all their space but convenient urban land became more sparse and expensive. Some cemetery owners or managers began practices that were sometimes illegal and often immoral. Now, archeologists and other concerned parties are engaged to try to determine the resulting problems and devise remedial action.

The  Louisville Genealogical Society annually sponsors a Family History  Seminar.

Lecture Topics
 
Presented by:  Dr. Michael Lacopo
9:00am – 10:00am
"Deconstructing Your Family Tree: Re-Evaluating the 'Evidence' "
When information passed on from researcher to researcher doesn't "add up," it's time to tear down the walls and rebuild anew. This methodology lecture shows how erroneous conclusions can sneak into our research uncontested. This lecture is pertinent especially today with so many Internet family trees that get cut and pasted into our own research.
 
Presented by:  Debra Renard
10:45am – 11:45am
"Tales from the Trenches: Using DNA Evidence as Proof of Lineage"
 
Presented by:  Dr. Michael Lacopo
1:00pm – 2:00pm
" 'I am poor, obscure, plain, and little'   Researching the Invisible Ancestors"
If your ancestors had little money, they did not buy and sell land, they did not leave wills or probates, they did not purchase stones for graves. How do you find them? This lecture will show you how!
 
Presented by:  Debra Renard
2:45pm – 3:45pm
"Hunting the Hunters: Hot on the Trail with DNA Strategies"
