The Link to Diane Huber’s Sharing Family Research – with your own Family For many of us, the real fun of genealogical research is discovering the stories of people and places with great connections to our own lives. Diane Huber will present 16 easy ways that she shares what she finds with her own family, from the youngest to the oldest—by listening and learning she hopes that her family history stays present. Diane took the Society’s spring course about 15 years ago and has been enthusiastic about sharing her research findings since then.  She retired in 2003 from a career in university administration, came home to Southampton and began to find interesting things to do, including three terms as a Council member.  She is grateful that her 86 year old Dad lives next door and that she knows great kids who get excited about old photos and love hearing stories about real people and places.    
  Diane welcomes your contributions to this webinar.  Please email dianehuber@bmts.com and tell her how you share  your genealogy research with your own family.

The Link to Kathryn Lake Hogan’s All kinds of Loyalists

During the American Revolutionary War, approximately 35% of the population of the Thirteen Colonies were loyal to King George III of Great Britain. Was your ancestor one them? If your ancestor sided with the British, he/she was branded a Tory and faced expulsion from the newly formed United States of America at the conclusion of the war. Tips and strategies for researching your Loyalist ancestor will be shared by the Past Dominion Genealogist of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada. Here is a link to her handout.

The Link to our Bring and Brag

Also some fun information from Anne Goeden: 
Just shortly after the Bring and Brag, Anne received “the will for Sir Andrew Fairbairn who died 31 May 1901. In the will he does leave the bulk of his estate to his nephews providing they change their surname to Fairbairn within a year of his death.  He leaves a settlement and trust monies from his late father, Sir Peter Fairbairn to Matilda Fairbairn, wife of Andrew Constant Fairbairn to be paid during her life for her sole and separate use, and after her decease to her children. Andrew Constant Fairbairn is not identified as his son, but he is bequeathed the furniture, plate, china, glass ornaments and household effects in the houses in France after the death of his mother. The estate was valued over 349.000 pounds, so his son got very little.  There surely must have been a rift between father and son. Another mystery to explore!”
