Topic: Just Do It! Self-Publishing Your Work
You have, like me, been thinking that it might be time to put “The Book” about your family together. We will cover some hints how to make this seemingly insurmountable task one that you can handle. I am a big fan of small bites to achieve a big goal.  Usually the first hurdle is self-talk: “I am not a good writer.” Trust me—-it doesn’t matter. Your descendents will love anything you do. The corollary to the first adage is “But I am not done with my research yet!” You will never be done, so you need to get started anyway. Let's see what our options are for self-publishing!

Topic: Soldiers, Spies, and Farm Wives: The Changing Roles of Women During the Civil War
Wars are horrific events that tear apart families, sometimes forever. These events, however, also lead to opportunities for women to fill roles that otherwise might be denied to them. Even Eleanor Roosevelt ascribed “The Great War” to advancing her activism into realms she had never dreamed of. The Civil War was no different in offering opportunities—to live life differently or even to die—to a certain group of women of the mid-1860s. We will explore pre-war opportunities and compare and contrast that with wartime and post-Civil war opportunities for women on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Black Miners in the Western U.S. with Janice Lovelace
The discovery of gold and later coal in the mid-19th century drew thousands, including African Americans, to the West Coast. Where did they go and what was life like for these Black men and women? What records can researchers find of their lives? In keeping with our centennial celebration, join us to hear the little-known story of the Black families who moved west to mine coal and other minerals.
