    This is a follow up group for presenters and participants in the “Analysing your AncestryDNA results” and/or the "Introduction to Blogger" program to work together to develop their skills and tell their family history stories using Blogger. You can find out more about the group here-

    https://sagbloggerdna.blogspot.com/p/about-our-group.html

    So if you’re a participant in the program and you’re using Blogger, why not think about joining us. The numbers are limited as we’re aiming to take a very hands on approach during the sessions. Please email any questions to admin[at]ag.org.au.

    We’ll meet for an hour and half from 7.30pm on the second Monday of each month unless this clashes with other scheduled SAG activities. We’ll then look for an alternative time with members.

    You must be a current member of SAG to join this group.

    Reunion and Mac Support (RAMS)

    SAG Members Only Season Ticket

    Members of the SAG can purchase a Season Ticket for the remaining four sessions in 2022 for the discounted price of $32 (a saving of $8).

    Reunion is a great genealogy program for Mac users that allows you to easily document and display information about your family. It features a navigable graphic Tree View in the form of an hourglass or ancestor chart, allowing you to navigate to everyone in your tree. It also has a variety of visually appealing, high quality charts and other useful reports, and an outstanding help manual.

    The group coordinators Danny O’Neill and Dale Fogarty aim to work collaboratively with its members on how to best use all the features of Reunion and how to resolve any Reunion or Mac-related issues that you may have. 

    Coordinators

    Danny O’Neill is with the Canberra family history group FHACT (aka HAGSOC) convening the Digital Asset Management group (DAMSIG) and Reunion and Macintosh Support User Group (RAMSUG). Main interests are in photography, scanning and book designing, and struggles to maintain a large garden. He is retired from careers as a photographer and film archivist, and enjoys helping people where he can. He looks forward to working with Dale and the team in restarting the Reunion group that includes Mac related support, but is not an expert.

    Dale Fogarty is a long-time user of Mac and Reunion, who is open to exchanging information and ideas to support our mutual enthusiasm for quality family history research, combining traditional genealogy and DNA approaches, and using a range of tools to organise, analyse and report findings. Dale enjoys working collaboratively, helping and learning from others. Dale is also the convenor of the Irish Interest Group at the Qld Family History Society.

    Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

    The course will include an e-workbook for each of the three sessions which includes exercises, templates, checklists and list of resources.

    Skill level: All     Presenter:  Danielle Lautrec

    Part 1: Getting Started Saturday 15 October 10.30am-12.30pm (AEDT). The first of the three-part session primarily uncovers the principles of family history research, with a particular emphasis on understanding the diversity between types of sources. The session will demonstrate numerous forms of charting and the necessary information required for each. It will then demonstrate search techniques, including reference to diverse repositories and instruction on how to best utilise them your research. To end, the session will discuss the importance of appropriate research planning as well as methods to achieve success.   

    Part 2: Analysing the evidence Saturday 5 November 10.30am-12.30pm (AEDT). Part two will enhance the theoretical grounding gathered from part one as it focuses on the practical aspects of genealogy. A detailed breakdown of source analysis will demonstrate how to recognise errors and overcome research challenges, ensuring that the sources help your research to its full potential. The session will also cover handwriting analysis and increase your problem-solving capabilities.  

    Part 3: Documenting and presenting Saturday 3 December 1.30pm-3.30pm (AEDT). Part three is focussed on how to share your discoveries with other researchers, including: charts, software, reports, books and online, allowing you to choose a method that best suits you.

    What brought 18 year old Frances Tiernan before the Magistrate’s court?

    Mrs Kennedy, her employer, claimed Frances had been “impudent in the extreme”. She would not stand at the wash tub unless she was allowed to wear her patent leather shoes. She would get married and become her own mistress.

    Under the Earl Grey immigration scheme 1848-1850, 4114 teenage girls came from the Irish Poor Law workhouses during the Great Irish Famine. But why were they in the workhouses in the first place? How were the ‘best’ girls chosen and by whom? What sort of a reception did they get in the colonies? Frances was one of 200 girls whose feet touched the ground of that remote inland town of Bathurst. Why Bathurst? What did Bathurst have to offer? Did they stay there? If not, where did they end up?

    Dr Perry McIntyre and Leonie Blair will present their findings and some research challenges of a local study of the Irish Orphans in colonial Bathurst and the Central West of New South Wales.

    Facilitated by The Write Folk, the Society of Australian Genealogists Creative Writing Program aims to teach creative writing tools and techniques, to use in conjunction with genealogical and social history research. With these skills, each Program participant will craft a unique, personal and entertaining short story. At the end of the Program, SAG will publish the short stories as a volume, in honour of the women who built and nurtured colonial Australia

    The Program will be structured around a series of creative writing exercises and story milestones. There will be a monthly Zoom session for learning and collaboration, along with a private discussion forum to ask questions, post exercises and provide feedback. A key component of the Program will be peer-to-peer feedback. This will be moderated, and feedback templates supplied. Participants will also receive guidance and feedback from the facilitator on each exercise, and at key stages of the story drafting and editing processes.

    Theme of stories: the women of colonial Australia

    Each participant will select one of their own female colonial ancestors and write a 4,000 to 5,000 word creative short story, based on their life and social history of the time.

    Note: For the purposes of this program the term colonial covers the period 1788-1901.

    Participation in the course will be limited to 15, in order to produce a publishable volume.

    Once published, each participant will receive the e-book and one printed copy as part of their Program fee. The e-book and print on demand copies will also be promoted through SAG and available for a fee.

    Ich bin ein Berliner: (Re)uniting five half-siblings from four different mothers

    We are honoured to have Michael Tobias join us from his home in Scotland. In July 2020, Michael agreed to assist a woman identify her birth father. DNA had revealed that he was Jewish. No-one could imagine the story that was about to unfold. Michael will give an overview of DNA inheritance and the impact of endogamy on DNA results and he will then show how he used the JRI-Poland database to create family trees based on the woman’s DNA matches. This is a session not to be missed as it combines the best of DNA and traditional genealogical research.

    The Society's Certificate in Genealogical Research is designed for those with more than three years family history research experience and who have gained at least some elementary research skills and a broad, even if basic, knowledge of resources available. To complete the coursework you are expected to extend your research beyond what can be found on the internet and to use local libraries and family history society collections, either in-person or remotely where possible. 

    The course consists of 8 assignments undertaken across a year. For each assignment you will be given the outline of what is required, together with some guidance to consider in preparing your submission. The assignments have been carefully selected to reflect the sorts of skills needed by genealogists and the course is essentially practical exercises in self-directed learning from experience.

    Please see this link for further details about the course and arrangements for cohorts in 2022 which will be similar to arrangements for 2023 (coming soon).
