Deborah Campisano will present Digging Deeper: Lesser Used Court Records.  In the early stages of our research, we’ve learned to use resources such as censuses, wills, vital records, deeds, and published family histories. If these records haven’t resolved your family history mysteries, it’s time to dig deeper!

Genealogy with Google Earth and Map Utilities – Part II - Finding and Analyzing Your Ancestral Lands
Tuesday, September 24
Genealogy with Google Earth and Map Utilities – Part II - Finding and Analyzing Your Ancestral Lands  (Workshop)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by: Phil Hysell
 
A presentation was given previously at LGS, which was essentially an introduction to the basics of Google Earth and how to use it to locate items of genealogical interest, such as ancestors' towns, 'lost' cemeteries, farms and 'drives' through places close to where they lived.
 
This "Part Two" will allow attendees to find the all important maps that may include ancestors' homes and/or farms and overlay them on more modern Google Earth maps to locate them more precisely after decades or centuries to see the effects of (usually) destructive development. Perhaps you can see what's left (or gone). In other words, the workshop will focus HEAVILY on the use of maps and survey methodology with Google Earth and other software utilities.
 
The free Google Earth program can be downloaded and installed on your computer. An extensive collection of website links and resources will be provided in a handout (though not necessarily covered in-depth), which will give everyone a good probability of locating an appropriate map to begin their own work at home.

Samuel Boone:  Patriot & Kentucky Pioneer
Tuesday, October 8
Samuel Boone: Patriot & Kentucky Pioneer  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by Helen McKinney 

Although Daniel Boone is likely the best known pioneer of the American Revolutionary and early Kentucky statehood periods in colonial America, his brothers were just as patriotic and adventuresome, and often with him wherever he went. His older brother Samuel (1728-1808) joined in the defense of Bryans Station in 1782 and had a son who was killed at the Battle of Blue Licks the same year. Samuel settled near Athens, Ky and along with his wife Sarah Day was a charter member of Boone’s Creek Baptist Church. He and Sarah left behind many descendants. As one of these descendants, Helen has been gathering information on Samuel and his family for years. She will share her findings at this LGS session.

Bowman Field Trains For D-Day
Tuesday, November 12
Bowman Field Trains For D-Day  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

Presented by Charlie Arrington 

With the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019, this is a good time to take a look at the role that Bowman Field had in training air crews for the event. Air crews from several Troop Carrier Groups that participated in D-Day trained at Bowman Field to gain flight time before crossing the ocean and to build teamwork among the crew. Bowman Field was considered a finishing school for already trained glider pilots. Here they participated in cross country flight operations and took infantry training to be used when they became combat soldiers after landing. And of course, Bowman Field supplied 100% of the Air Evacuation Nurses that cared for so many wounded and injured during the D-Day landings
