Ancestral Gold, Murder, and Ghost Stories

gold Every week, there are interesting genealogy workshops, classes, conferences, webinars, and events to attend. Some of them might be going in near where you live! Here are a few that will be happening soon.

Ancestry.com LIVE has two webinars scheduled for this week. One is called “Genealogy Brainstorming: I’m Stuck. Now What?”. It will take place on October 9, 2012, from 1:00 in the afternoon until 2:00 in the afternoon, EDT.

The other one is called “How To Up Your Genealogy Game”. It will happen on October 11, 2012, starting at 1:00 in the afternoon, and ending at 2:00 in the afternoon EDT. You must RSVP if you want to attend either of these webinars.

On October 13, 2012, there will be a free genealogy event at the California State Archives, which is located in Sacramento, California. It is the Fourteenth Annual Family History Day. It will begin at 8:30 in the morning and end at 4:30 in the afternoon.

You can “Discover Ancestral Gold” in one of 24 beginner and basic level genealogy sessions. Take a class in the State Archives Presentation lab, or take a tour of the “vault”. There will be exhibitors, handouts, and more. Attendance is free, and parking is free, too.

On October 16, 2012, the Newton Public Library, which is located in Newton, Massachusetts, will host a presentation called “Murder and Mayhem in Harvey County”.

On October 27, the Three Valley Museum, which is located in Durant, Oklahoma, will host the first ever “Ghost Stories at Highland”. This is presented in conjunction with the Bryan County Genealogy Library. It will begin at 7:00 in the evening at the Highland Cemetery.
