“Battletown Witch” (Program)  (Kentucky Seminars & Workshops)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY
Presented by: Gerald W. Fischer
 
For more than 175 years, many folks who wander the woods near Battletown, Kentucky, have seen the ghost of Leah Smock, who was burned as a witch at the age of 22 in August 1840.  Enveloped in a purple glow, her spirit stands beside her grave, wearing a long white robe…her black hair flowing as if being blown by the wind.
 
 In Battletown Witch: Leah Smock, the Evolution of Witchcraft and the Last Burning in America, Mr. Fischer tells the story of Leah Smock, the legend of her supernatural powers and her death at the hands of neighboring families.  It also tells about the socio-economic environment of the area in which she lived and died, and as much as is known about her family, death and afterlife.  The book also explores the evolution of witchcraft from early beliefs, superstitions and cultures across the world, primarily in Europe, and how these beliefs influenced life in the early American colonies.
 
Battletown Witch is a fascinating look at how fear of witchcraft and community gossip lead to the death of a country girl nearly two centuries ago and how her legend still lives today.

PERSI (PERiodical Source Index) (Workshop)  (Kentucky Seminars & Workshops)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY
Presented by Mel Arnold

The Allen County Public Library in Indiana (ACPL) has gathered one of the largest collections of genealogical materials in the world. It is generally acknowledged to be second only to the Salt Lake library. In 1986, the staff of the ACPL Genealogical Center decided to do something about the limited availability of copies of genealogical articles published in periodicals for family historians. The staff identified publications that regularly contained applicable material, created an index for relevant articles and determined they would make the list available to the researchers of family history. In addition to providing the list, they also decided to obtain current and past issues of the periodicals selected and to develop a methodology for ordering copies of desired essays. The index has been produced with the capability of researching in four categories; people, locations, genealogical methodologies and abibliography of periodicals included. We will review the development of the collection, describe the process by which one finds articles of interest and discuss how to obtain any helpful articles you may have selected.

Selected Records from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files (Workshop  (Kentucky Seminars & Workshops)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY
Presented by: Betty Darnell
In the “dark ages” we had to be content with “Selected Records from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files,” available on microfilm in some libraries, or ordered from the National Archives. These files were “selected” as the most important records from the file. The entire files are now available on the internet, so you may need to check your ancestor’s file again. We’ll see some examples of some of the “less-important” records from the “non-select” portion of the files.
