Four Presentations by Judy G. Russell, "The Legal Genealogist"

The Legal Genealogist is coming to town! Prepare for a full day of learning about critical sources and important strategies for tackling your most challenging ancestors. Judy is a nationally known presenter, blogger (, and coordinator of the Advanced Genealogical Methods and Evidence Analysis course at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research at the University of Georgia. If you have already heard her, you know you want to be here. And if you haven't heard her, you need to be here.

These four excellent presentations will be delivered in Judy's straightforward and humorous style:

Finding the Law
 We’re told as genealogists to look at records in the context of the law at the time and in the place where the records were created. With 50 states and the federal government all passing laws, how we do find the laws we need? Examples from Maryland law will be featured.

When Worlds Collide: Resolving Conflicts in Genealogical Records
 The Genealogical Proof Standard says to resolve conflicts in data… but it’s sometimes easier said than done. What are the basic types of evidence conflicts and the methods—and tips and tricks—we can use to resolve them?

“Don’t Forget the Ladies”-A Genealogists’ Guide to Women and the Law
 In early America, women were all too often the people who just weren’t there: not in the records, not in the censuses, not on juries, not in the voting booth. Understanding how they were treated under the law provides clues to finding their identities today.

No Vitals? No Problem! Building a Family through Circumstantial Evidence
 When there’s no birth, marriage or death record, what’s a genealogist to do? Learn how to use circumstantial evidence to build a family.

The day includes continental breakfast and buffet luncheon in a beautiful conference wing of the hotel. Registration opens and breakfast is served at 8:30 AM. The first lecture begins at 9:30 AM.

Cost: $70 – MGS Members $80 – Non-members

Traveling from a distance? Rooms are available at the Hilton Garden Inn at a rate of $129 per night (code MDGE 366101). There is a Hampton Inn at the same location.

Also joining us that day is vendor Jigsaw Genealogy. Visit the website to see its selection of wall-sized pedigree charts, forms, worksheets, research kits, archival-safe photo storage materials, and other research necessities.
