Maggie Young posted a calendar event in Community CalendaruntilLooking for elusive ancestors in Britain and Wales? Join us for a very special 2 hour genealogy event at the Steele Memorial Library in beautiful Elmira, NY! Genealogist Liz Pearson will be here for the first of three sessions at the Steele: English and Welsh Parish records 1538-1837! From 1538-1837 parish records contain all the significant life events of 98% of the population, in addition, original documents often contain additional personal comments from the recorder. We will examine the historical parish jurisdictions and the personal and cultural impacts of the church/state law that governed most citizens regarding baptism, marriage, burial, and many other life events. (Level Beginner to Intermediate) Liz Pearson was born in England where she spent many years researching her own family history. During the late 70's her professional life transplanted her to New York and Washington DC where she found many opportunities to share her English and Welsh expertise with Anglo Americans researching their roots. She holds several research qualifications and is an associate member of the Society of Genealogists in London, England. Liz now volunteers and teaches for the Pinellas (FL) Genealogical Society as well as offering professional genealogy services in English and Welsh family history. Liz is also a photographer and likes to spend her spare time capturing images of elusive wild orchids and uncooperative fauna. $5 Registration Fee. Call 607-733-9175 to register.
