Speaker Profile-Pamela Boyer Sayre, CG, CGL

Including this exciting NGS conference in Las Vegas, Pamela Boyer Sayre, CG, CGL, has taught genealogical seminars and classes in 32 states.

In W127, "Federal Records Relating to Rivers and Canals," you’ll learn to use records at the federal level to ferret out obscure facts and photos relating to development of dams and canals or traffic and travel on rivers and canals. Pick up a tip about where to look for an ancestor who helped with the Panama Canal, traveled via steamboat from Missouri to California, or owned land along the Ohio River.

W315, "Spanish Archives Materials: Not Just for Hispanics"
Spanish land grants in Missouri or Arkansas? Sure. Baptismal or marriage details of Virginia Baptists in Catholic Church records? Absolutely. From the vast Louisiana Purchase lands to the American Southeast or Southwest, these records document Americans who traveled through or settled areas once governed by Spain but now in the United States. Learn how to find your early ancestors in Spanish Archives materials available within the continental United States.

S451, "Enough is Enough! Or is it?"
The Board for Certification of Genealogists defines standards for a reasonably exhaustive search and the genealogical proof standard, but how do you know when you have really done enough to meet project goals? This lecture aims to calm your fears, provide tips for doing a good job, and show you a real step-by-step case study example of hair-pulling and rock-turning to look for the best right answer to support the research goals.
