How to Extract and Use in Your Research the “Hidden” Y-DNA Information in the AncestryDNA Test  (Special Interest Group)
Saturday, January 12, 2019
11:30 am to 1:00 pm
Okeechobee Blvd Branch PBC Library, near FL Turnpike - NOTE LOCATION!
Men who have taken the AncestryDNA test may not be aware that there is Y-DNA information included in their raw data.  AncestryDNA does not provide any reports on or analysis of this data.  The data can be very helpful in tracing a man’s patrilineal (father’s father’s…father’s) line since Y-DNA is only inherited from a man’s father.  We will look at how to access the data, interpret it, and use it in family history research.

Accessible Archives - Our Newest Library Subscription  (Library Holiday Closings)
Saturday, January 12, 2019
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Okeechobee Blvd. Branch of PBC Public Library
Accessible Archives Webinar
There will be a webinar presentation on becoming familiar with, and making the most of, our newest subscription, Accessible Archives. The host for the webinar will be Bob Lester of Unlimited Priorities, their Product Development and Strategy Consultant.
Topics expected to be covered:
                Accessible Archives Collections Overview
                American County Histories: A Unique Research Resource.   One of the biggest benefits is that they have indexes for the many county histories and biographical sketches included in many of these volumes. Their collections are searchable which saves hours and hours of searching.
                African American Newspaper Collection
                Pennsylvania Genealogical Catalog
It is unusual for a county genealogical society to invest in this subscription and we are hoping that members will find it to be an exceptionally valuable resource. This subscription will be available as soon as the construction at the county library allows us to reopen. We think that this will be a very popular subscription that will justify our continuing the subscription for many years.
