Genealogy Presentation History

Nick Cimino

Saturday, January 7, 2017 Southern California Genealogical Society Webinar Series

  • "Chain Migration from Ulster and One Name Studies" -Due to the scarcity of Irish records an excellent genealogical approach is to widen the focus from a particular pedigree to all occurrences of a surname in your Irish locality whether it be a townland, a county or a region like Ulster. 

October 28-30, 2016  Texas State Genealogical Society Annual Meeting

  • "Anatomy of a Slave Narrative" -A case study was presented demonstrating how to use information provided in a slave narrative to open the door to genealogical records that tell the rest of the story using the narrative of Agatha Babino from Beaumont, Texas.
  • "Reconstructing the 1870 Neighborhood" -The 1870 census was the first in American history to enumerate African Americans.  A complete examination of the community depicted in the 1870 census is crucial to surmounting the brick wall that faces African Americans researching slave ancestors.  Study of the 1870 census is also vitally important to a new historical understanding of the complex relationships of ancestors, both black and white in the Reconstruction period.
