This recorded Webinar will be freely available to the public from midnight Thursday night through midnight Sunday night (ET), 3-5 February 2023. (The live webinar was originally presented on 6 May 2020.)

The handout for this presentation will only be available to the public during the viewing period, and may not be downloaded. It will open in a separate tab, however, so it can be referred to during the webinar. For logged in members, the handout is always accessible from the main Webinars page. (On the top menu, under Education & Events, select Webinars to go to the main webinars page. Scroll 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.) This webinar is always available to members in the Member Webinars area of the website. Each members’ webinar page also has a direct link to the handout.

About the Webinar:

What is “context” and how can we use it to understand the lives of our ancestors?
Using a manuscript can add to the story of your ancestor even if your ancestor is never mentioned. Learn how to conduct a search for manuscripts and integrate the experiences into the life events of another.

About the Speaker:

Jill Morelli, CG®, loves to share her passion for genealogy! To do so, she writes articles, takes clients and lectures, and conducts workshops nationwide in her areas of expertise: intermediate and advanced methodologies, unique record sets, and Scandinavian research techniques. Her articles, which usually reflect her current research endeavors, have appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (September 2017, December 2018), the Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly (winter 2016, summer 2018), and the Swedish American Genealogist (March 2019).
She recently completed an article for the North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal (possible publication in 2020). Her research has taken her to North Carolina where she researched fifty captured Union soldiers of the 191st Pennsylvania Infantry who were confined at Salisbury Prison and focused on three “galvanized Yankees” who joined the Confederate Army. These research projects often “spin off” lectures or articles, such as the presentations “A Salisbury Diary: Extracting Evidence for Context and Content” and “Finding a Father for Molly Using DNA.”
Jill is a member of the Salisbury Confederate Prison Association and president of the Seattle Genealogical Society. She earned the certification of Certified Genealogist in 2017. You can find out more about certification, and about Jill, at https://theCDGseries.wordpress.com.

This webinar is always accessible on the website to NCGS members as a member benefit.
