Using Deeds and Wills to build your FAN Club or Cluster Research  (Kentucky Seminars & Workshops)
Bon Air Regional Library, 2816 Del Rio Place, Louisville, KY 40220
Presented by: Nancy Roberson

How do you break through those brick walls?  Are you researching pre-1850 and can't find your next generation?  One way is to use deeds and wills to build your FAN Club or Cluster Research. “FAN club” is an abbreviation coined by Elizabeth Shown Mills, CGSM to help genealogists remember this important concept. FAN is an abbreviation for Friends, Associates, and Neighbors. Another term often used to mean the same as FAN club is “cluster research”.   This workshop is presented twice, 10:00 am to Noon and 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  Internet access is available for notebook or laptop.   All are welcome.

Presented by: Dixie Hibbs
 
Join us for a workshop with Dixie Hibbs, historian, author, former mayor of Bardstown, and recently retired manager of Wickland, Home to Three Governors. Dixie will share how she was able to find and utilize information from 3 boxes of microfilm, a thousand miles away, and how those reels of microfilm revealed little known details in the interesting life of one of the Wickliffe sisters, daughter of Charles Wickliffe, former governor of Kentucky. Dixie will share her experiences in historical sleuthing and reveal helpful hints that can be used by those researching for family histories and other historical interests.
“I love to research, but I don’t like to write.  Then why have I written sixteen books?  My conscience drives me to collect and make available the “new historical stories” that I have uncovered.  I will share with you some of the sources that I have used and how to research in them.”—Dixie Hibbs.
