ETGS Members will be emailed the ZOOM address for the online meeting from info@etgs.org.
 
Whether researching an ancestor or looking for historical context in the 30s to 40s, there’s something of interest in the W.P.A. records. This lecture introduces the structure and major projects of the W.P.A. including how to use finding aids to locate information to support research goals.
 
A life-long interest in her family’s history led Sharon to an active involvement in genealogical research for more than 25 years. Ms. Gillins’ career spans 40 years in education, retiring as Associate Professor at Riverside Community College, Riverside, California. She frequently calls upon her career background as a college educator to present lectures locally as well as at regional and national genealogy conferences. Sharon’s research and teaching emphasize strategies and underutilized record sources that can be used to discover details of Southern life and ancestry during the 19th Century including that of planter slave owners, enslaved people, and free people of color. At present, Ms. Gillins is a Research Associate at the Mary Moody Northern Endowment in Galveston, Texas, where she is responsible for the Moody Archive consisting of family and business manuscripts and photographs that date to the early 1800s.

ETGS Monthly Meeting and Presentation
Saturday, October 10
ETGS Monthly Meeting and Presentation  (Meetings)
2:00 pm
Location: your computer or phone!
After a short meeting, our program will be a pre-recorded informative presentation by Janine Cloud - "Birds of a Feather – Y-DNA Research and Group Projects".
 
ETGS Members will be emailed the ZOOM address for the online meeting from info@etgs.org.
 
Y chromosomal DNA passes only from father to son, but while the path of inheritance is simple, choosing which Y test to take  can be confusing, and using the results once you have them can be even more confusing. Group projects can help alleviate some of that confusion as well as help focus research through comparison with other testers beyond simple one-to-one matching.
 
Janine Cloud started on the phones at FamilyTreeDNA in 2011 and created the Group Projects team, which she now manages, in 2014. She is also the event coordinator for FTDNA and has given DNA talks at the local, regional, and national level since 2015. A fifth-generation Texan, Janine is a registered member of the Cherokee Nation.
