Webinar, Bibliography, etc.

I think that we are going to have a great class this year. I enjoyed getting to know you during class, and then reading your student profiles after class. It was interesting to see what your interests are. I will be using the information to help develop the direction of the rest of the course.

I have located the details about the webinar scheduled for this Monday at 6:00 CDT. The Friends of the National Archives-Southeast Region is making this available for free. They describe webinars as “a Web-based seminar, lecture, or presentation delivered via the Internet. Audience my register and attend (using their computer) from the comfort of their home.”

The speaker will be Meg Hacker, Archival Operations Director at the Southwest Region in Fort Worth. There is a link to register on this website: Her topic will be “Researching Records Relating to the Five Tribes of Oklahoma… made a little bit easier.” A large portion of the federal records for the Cherokee, Muscogee/Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole tribes may be found in the National Archives – Southwest in Fort Worth, Texas, and trying to use them can be confusing. Some have been microfilmed and are available at various libraries and archives; some have been digitized and are available online; others have not been filmed, digitized, or indexed and can only be used in person.

Meg is a fun and engaging speaker and is an expert on this topic. I encourage you to register and check out the technical details at the site, where I found the following system requirements:

PC-based attendees
Required: Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server

Macintosh®-based attendees
Required: Mac OS® X 10.5 or newer

Attendees will be able to ask questions, but will need to have a microphone (and they recommend a headset) to do so. It has been my experience with other webinars that you will not need to have a voice in their forum – you can simply listen. There are more webinars scheduled for the months ahead. If you aren’t interested in this topic, you might make a note of their later webinars.

I have updated the Genealogy Bibliography – the one that I told you to bring back each week – and you can download the updated file here – Bibliography11, and then print yourself a new one (but the one you picked up on Wednesday will be fine). I added Marsha Hoffman Rising’s book, The Family Tree Problem Solver, which is one of the books I mentioned in class available at the Tulsa City County Library.

I also added links to the Association of Professional Genealogists ( and the Board for Certification of Genealogists ( And I replaced the URL for this blog with the new one –

Bob Jones:

I’m looking for everybody above my grandparents. No one is still alive who would know. AQ very old newspaper my mother had is taking me back to maternal grandmother’s parents. It staters that maternal greatfather was a Civil War veteran, but doesn’t say which side (Im assuming Union (it’s an Iowa newspaper), but now to find out.

Thanks for posting your objective here. Roughly when and where did Green Gibson live? Have you put much together on his family members – spouse and children, brothers and sisters (I’m assuming that you don’t know his parents)? See you in class tomorrow. Barbara

Did you know your grandfather Schmitt? Finding his place of burial (and place of death) can be a big help because it can lead to key information on the person who died and frequently on other family members. I think you told me that you are already familiar with, so I’m betting that you have tried that neat website. We should talk more about what you do know.

If you don’t know his place of death, do you think he died after about 1962 and in the United States? If so, then odds are pretty good that you could find more about his date of death and clues to his last place of residence by locating his record in the Social Security Death Index. To find a link to the index, go to RootsWeb’s Guide to Tracing Family Trees at where you can also read much more about the Social Security Death Index. The RootsWeb Guide to Tracing Family Trees has other good lessons too. Let us know what you find out!

Thanks for posting your objective here! Remember what I said in class about working from the “known” to the “unknown?” Be sure to study your parents and grandparents on your journey back to previous generations.

As far as your Civil War veteran, I think you are right about his having served for the Union. I guess the newspaper gives the soldier’s name? You might want to begin by searching for the soldier using Fold3 or Ancestry Library Edition, both of which you could use for free at the Tulsa City County Library’s Genealogy Center, 2901 S. Harvard. Ancestry Library Edition is also available at any of the branches in the TCCL system. Go to to find your nearest library.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System might have your answer, too, although if your veteran had the same name as any other veteran, then you won’t have a definitive answer, but you could take the information you find and then find other records to help you identify your guy. Here is the link: and you can access this site for free. Barbara
