Yes, yes, yes, there’s going to be an Ancestry-In-Action: Genealogy Workshop with Warren Bittner next week. Join Warren Bittner, CGSM, a genealogical researcher and lecturer, for a discussion about the below topics in ancestry research.
- Understanding and Researching Illegitimacy
See new light on nineteenth century morality. Follow a couple with three children born during a ten-year wait for marriage. You’ll be amazed to learn what happened. This lecture is based on Mr. Bittner’s Master’s Thesis, and also the material used in his award-winning article.
- German Research: Bads, Bergs, Burgs and Bachs
Learn to solve challenging locality problems, map guides, reverse sorts, etc.
This workshop is going to be so much fun. Mr. Bittner is a genealogical researcher and lecturer, with thirty years of research experience. He holds a MS in history from Utah State University and a BS in Business from Brigham Young University. His master’s thesis looked at the social factors affecting illegitimacy in nineteenth-century Bavaria.
