Speaker Paula Stuart-Warren:  "Minnesota Genealogical Research: Exceptional Resources"
     Minnesota has become a relatively easy state for researching your family history. The number of original records, microfilmed records, digitized records, and online indexes available to us is exceptional. Even better, the number of those keeps growing. Older published indexes, guides, histories, and record abstracts are still an important part of the research. A large portion of these are accessible no matter where you live thanks to free and subscription websites. Interlibrary Loan makes more items accessible. As with any other state, onsite research in the county courthouses, county and state historical societies, the state archives, and other fantastic research repositories adds to the available records.
 
   Speaker Thomas Neel:  "Tracing Family History in Ohio"
     Ohio has been called the "Cross Roads of our Nation" on the migratory path westward from New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and even parts of the South. As the indigenous residents were unceremoniously pushed out, the river and road systems and tillable land invited all to a new frontier that the government quickly tried to organize through a land distribution and court system that can make the genealogist wide-eyed. We will look at the land, the courts,  the religious institutions, and the records that our ancestors produced. Ohio's library and archival system might be a bit unique as well, but many treasures await those who want to take the time to learn about Ohio and explore the more unusual aspects of our historical record.
 
Speaker Sheri Snodgrass:  "The Land Between The Rivers"
     Today Iowa is often part of ‘fly over’ country.  But the history goes back to the beginning of the westward expansion with trade up the Mississippi River in the late 18th century and trading houses were built along the Missouri River before 1808.   Many families migrated west into the newly explored and acquired land looking for land and opportunity.  During that migration many stopped in Iowa, some settling this new territory and some later moved further west – joining the Oregon Trail or the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City.
     We’ll look at the records, what’s available and where you can locate them plus additional resources that can help find your family stories.
