Whitman County Genealogical Society is hosting a FREE Fall mini-seminar Bishop Place Independent Living Social Room, 811 SE Klemgard, Pullman, WA Saturday, October 13, 2018
“All About Heraldry and Its Use in Genealogy” By Anthony (Tony) Durnford deGray Birch
“Digital Research – Tips, Tricks and Resources” By Lee Pierce
9:00 am: The doors open.
9:30 am-10:30 am: Anthony (Tony) Birch is a retired higher education administrator and long standing member of Eastern Washington Genealogical Society. He doesn’t claim to be a heraldry expert, but a family historian trying to make sense out of things he has inherited or found through research. His presentation will focus on heraldry, and how the genealogist/family historian can use heraldry to learn more about their ancestors. He will share examples of his ten-year search of his ancestors’ crests and coats of arms and what the many images, forms and colors mean.
10:30-10:45 Break and refreshments.
10:45 am-11:45 am: Lee Pierce is the archivist for the Eastern Region Branch of the Washington State Archives in Cheney, Washington. His mission is to collect, preserve and provide access to the records of local government agencies of the 11 furthest east counties of the state. He will be showing and telling about the digital archives and how best to use it, as well as other government resources that are available to researchers.
