LGS  Small Group for First Wave German Ancestors
Wednesday, November 4
LGS Small Group for First Wave German Ancestors  (SIG)
2:00 pm
LGS is organizing a "small group" to concentrate on German ancestry in Pennsylvania during the 1700's.
We have a Zoom meeting planned for November 4th at 2:00 PM for an organizational get together. 
Hopefully we can share documentation, sources and efforts. I suspect that by pooling our resources we can accomplish much more than each of us could do individually.
If you have German ancestry in Pennsylvania in the 1700s please join us.  You must register below to  attend the meeting. Please respond to me, even if you cannot make the Zoom meeting.

The Story of the Sportsmen’s Bar Stickup and Its Consequences
A few years ago I happened across an old, brief newspaper article that covered the robbery of a bar in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The only reason it grabbed my attention was that one of the robbers was a Mrs. Catherine Hysell. All the other gang members had their ages mentioned. Catherine’s wasn’t. All were from Minneapolis – except for Catherine. She was from a place called Deer River. I scanned all my references on the family, but found none from Deer River. I put the article aside and forgot about it. Then came the “Pandemic Quarantine” and I had some free time on my hands to investigate. This is the story behind that article.

Our December program is shaping up to be a unique experience drawn from the pages of “Kentucky’s Twelve Days of Christmas”, an anthology of Kentucky holiday lore, published by Kentucky Monthly Magazine.  Steve Vest, editor and publisher of the magazine, will be our host as we are treated to some of the selections from this collection of stories, poems and songs by Kentucky artists.

Georgia Green Stamper was raised in Owen County, KY.  After graduating from Transylvania University, she taught high school English, theater and coached the speech team.  In 1999, she began writing essays that have been published in numerous publications.  In 2004 she began writing a bi-weekly column, “Georgia:  On My Mind” for The Owenton News Herald.   She now lives with her husband, Eric, in Lexington.
Heath and Molly Eric, a husband and wife duo, are an American Roots-Rock musical group from Western Kentucky (Rumsey).  They performed about 150 concerts and festivals a year until late 2019 when they retired from public performing.  They formed The Eric Group, which handles the behind the scenes work necessary to produce concerts and festivals.  We are so lucky they have agreed to share their musical talents with LGS.

Tips and Techniques for Identifying Female Ancestors
Presented by: Deborah Campisano
Finding parents and a maiden name for our female ancestor is essential to extending that ancestral line further. That discovery is often hindered by lack of conventional genealogical records due to a woman's legal status. Though the task may seem daunting, a thorough search in a wide variety of records, particularly those created by her husband, children, othermale relatives, and their family associates can lead to success.    
Deborah Lord Campisano, (BA History), has over 38 years of genealogical research experience -- 24 as a professional. Now retired, she has concentrated on genetic genealogy course work at a number of institutes and co-founded the LGS DNA Special Interest Group with friend and colleague, Debra Renard. Deborah is currently at work on identifying an unknown 2x Irish great grandmother and other unknown ancestors using DNA evidence and traditional research.
