Dr D Will Be Busy This Fall

Dr D will be busy this fall and may further neglect his blog posts. This next week he begins teaching a weekly genealogy seminar within our continuing care retirement center here in Nashville. The first 6 sessions will be the Readers Digest condensed version of his 2011 Crash Course in Genealogy.

In subsequent weeks we will tour Europe looking for the footprints of ancestors.

Beginning September 4th
at 2:30 PM in the Assembly Room

The first 6 sessions will be updates of the series presented in Spring 2012 on US Genealogy Research:

·       Seminar 1. Genealogy Overview
– September 4th

·       Seminar 2. Free search sites on the Internet featuring Google & FamilySearch
– September 11th

·       Seminar 3. 20th Century US Research
      [Thinking backward]
 – September 18th

·       Seminar 4. 19th Century US Research
– September 25th

·       Seminar 5. Colonial Research
– October 2nd

·       Seminar 6. Adding DNA Testing to your researcher’s toolkit
– October 9th

Going to Europe:  European research will be frustrating unless you have already discovered the town and/or parish of your ancestors’ origin, but you are welcome to go along for the ride.

·       Seminar 7. England & Wales – October 16th

·       Seminar 8. Scotland and Ireland – October 23rd

·       Seminar 9. Scandinavia -- October 30th

·       Seminar 10. Germany – November 6th

Additional sessions may include Eastern Europe, France and the Netherlands, and advanced topics on DNA testing for genealogy

In addition, Dr D will be on the other side of the lectern as a student at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Vanderbilt University taking the course Science Behind the Medicine and Medical Advances.

Retirement is not for sissies!
