A LIVE Webinar, May 1, 2024 at 7:00 pm ET.

Live webinars are now available to everyone, but please log in if you already have an account with NCGS.

The handout for this presentation will be posted on the NCGS website at least one week prior to the webinar. On the top menu, under Education & Events select Webinars to go to the main webinars page. Click on the button for “Current Live Webinar Handout”. All handouts may also be accessed by scrolling down and click on “Explore the Webinar Library”. That page has a link to “Member Webinar Handouts” (which is arranged in alphabetical order) in the leading paragraph.

About the Webinar:

Choosing to join a lineage society is one way to honor your ancestor. The variety of societies has increased in recent years to include military, fraternal, religious, heritage, hereditary, ethnic, and patriotic foci, to name just a few. Which one, if any, should you join? Are the applications the same for each? What are the requirements? What types of records are they looking for? All of these questions will be answered, and samples of several society applications will be examined.

About the Speaker:

Emily Coffman Richardson is a professional genealogist and lecturer who began her genealogy research working with her mother in courthouses and cemeteries finding records for her ancestors in Ohio and Pennsylvania. From 2014 – 2018, Emily lived and worked in Charlotte, North Carolina, during which time she researched her husband’s Richardson family in Nash County North Carolina and did pro-bono client work researching in both the archives in North Carolina and South Carolina.

In 2019, she retired from higher education as a faculty member and administrator, moved to Texas, and opened Kinsearchers, the original name of her mother’s business as a genealogist.
She served as the secretary of the Texas State Genealogical Society for the past four years and currently is on the executive committee as Director-at-Large. Emily oversees the production of the TxSGS Podcast, Lone Star Family Trails and is the programming chair for the Robson Ranch Genealogy Club. She teaches genealogy courses for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) for the University of North Texas. She speaks to local and regional genealogy societies on a variety of topics.

Emily has participated in several week-long institutes, including SLIG (Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy), IGHR (Institute of Genealogical Studies), and TIGR (Texas Institute of Genealogical Research), as well as ProGen34. Emily’s clientele includes genealogists who have a brick wall, out-of-state inquiries for record pulls in Texas, and research for those who are interested in joining one of the many lineage societies.
