                                          SETTLERS IN THE WILDERNESS
 
The American descendants of Presbyterian and other Protestant dissenters from
the Irish province of Ulster migrated to North American during the 18th and 19th
centuries.  They are found on the rolls of Revolutionary War patriots, were early
settlers of the American frontiers and were the ancestors of several American
presidents.  As a group, they forever changed the face of America.  The class
is an introduction to the Scots-Irish and the sources available to genealogists
researching their Scots-Irish heritage.

12:30 -  1:30 PM              Part I:  MAPPING AN ANCESTOR
 
Geography is a discipline closely related to genealogy and an untapped resource
for learning more about our ancestors.  Using geography and maps in research
provides visual clues to help answer questions about where, how far, and what
is nearby.  Learn about the George E. Curry family of Ohio and Kansas and how
maps focused the research, located property, identified lost place names
solved a family mystery, and identified jurisdictions to write for records.

1:45 -  2:45 PM                Part II: MAPPING AN ANCESTOR
