WE JUST HAD ST. PATRICK’S DAY WHY THE IRISH CELEBRATE THEIR HERITAGE. AND IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHAT YOUR HERITAGE IS, YOU CAN COME TO THE NORTH HILLS 2018 GENOLOGY CONFERENCE. WE HAVE GUESTS HERE TO TELL US WHAT YOU CAN DO AND DISCOVER THERE. WELCOME TO BACK AND FORTH YOU. WE JUST HAD ST. PATRICK’S DAY. AND WE KNOW IT HAS BECOME SO POPULAR AS OF LATE, ALL THE TESTS TO FIND OUT WHO YOUR ANCESTORS WERE AND WHERE YOU LIVE AND WHERE DO YOU COME FROM. WHY DO YOU THINK IS SUCH AN INTEREST IN KNOWING THAT THESE DAYS? I THINK A LOT OF AMERICANS COME FROM ELSEWHERE. MELTING POT. AND IT IS BECOMING INTERESTING FOR PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS BECOMING EASIER BECAUSE THERE ARE DATABASES AND YOU CAN TAKE DNA TESTS TO LEARN MORE. SO I THINK THAT EASE HAS MADE IT INTERESTING FOR PEOPLE AND ACCESSIBLE FOR PEOPLE. AND I THINK PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT NORTH HILLS GENOLOGYISTS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE. YES, FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS. THIS IS THE 28th YEAR, I BELIEVE. AND YOU WORK AS A GROUP. TELL US WHAT DO YOU, EXACTLY. WE HAVE MONTHLY MEETINGS THE THIRD TUESDAY OF THE MONTH. AND WE’LL HAVE A MEETING TONIGHT UNLESS THE SNOW GETS IN THE WAY AT THE NORTH PARKLAND LIBRARY AT 7:00 P.M. AND WE HAVE DIFFERENT SPEAKERS TO COME IN AND TALK ABOUT DIFFERENT GENOLOGY TOP PICKS. AND WE’LL TALK ABOUT PRESERVING YOUR FAMILY PHOTOS. AND PEOPLE CAN ASK QUESTIONS IT IS A GREAT WAY FOR BEGINNERS AND FOLKS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN TO OUR MEETING BEFORE TO GET THEIR FEET WET. I’VE BEEN DOING GENOLOGY FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, I APPRECIATE ALL THE MEETINGS. IT IS SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN AND A RESOURCE HOW TO PRESERVE FAMILY PHOTOS. I WAS GOING TO SAY. WHERE DO YOU START? WHERE. DO YOU GO TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND YOUR ANCESTORS? A GREAT WAY IS TO COME TO THE CONFERENCE. WE HAVE A CONFERENCE THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. AND ONE OF THE TOPICS THIS FRIDAY IT GOING TO BE GIVEN BY A GUEST THAT WILL TALK ABOUT FINDING YOUR ANCESTORS ON FEDERAL RECORDS. AND ONE OF THOSE THE CORRUPT CENSUS. AND WE HAVE THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE ARE ARRIVES GUEST. AND HE’LL TALK MILITARY RECORDS AS WELL. AND SATURDAY, THE TWO THEM WILL TALK ABOUT NATURALIZATION RECORDS AND ALSO PASSENGER ARRIVAL RECORDS THAT IS AN EXCITING THING. BUT I DID WANT TO ASK SOMETHING ELSE WHAT IS NICE ABOUT RECORDS THIS IS A TELEVISION CONFESSION HERE. I GET OVERWHELMED SOMETIMES WITH THE NUMBER OF RECORDS THAT ARE OUT THERE AND HOW DO I GET ACCESS FROM THEM? AND THAT IS WHAT THEY’LL BE TALKING ABOUT TOO. IT IS NOT OWN LAY IS IN THE RECORDS, BUT — ONLY WHAT IS IN THE RECORDS, BUT HOW DO WE ACCESS AND LOCATE THEM. AND WE’RE LOOKING AT SOME PICTURES NOW, SOME RECORDS. YOU COULD TALK ABOUT BIRTH CERTIFICATES ORIENT INTERROGATE THE COUNTRY — OR COMING INTO THE COUNTRY. I IMAGINE IT CAN BE OVERWHELMING. YES. THIS IS A GREAT WAY IF YOU’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE YOUR FAMILY CAME FROM OVERSEAS, THIS PIECE OF PAPER CAN HELP YOU DETERMINE THAT EXACT LOCATION. AND RICH HAS A GREAT STORY ABOUT HIS GREAT GRANDPARENTS AND THE JOURNEY. HE DISCOVERED THAT. THAT WAS HIS PAPERWORK. THEY LIVED IN THE PITTSBURGH AREA. AS YOU GET INTO THE RECORDS AND KNOW MORE ABOUT — THAT IS THEIR WEDDING PHOTO. AS YOU GET INTO THE LAWS OF PLACE AND TIME, MY GREAT- GRANDMOTHER WAS IMPORTANT IN THE STATE. BUT BECAUSE SHE MARRIED A FOREIGN MAN, SHE LOST HER CITIZENSHIP. AND SHE NEVER LEFT. AND WHEN HE NATURALIZED, AND THAT IS MY GREAT GRANDFATHER THERE, SHE REGAINED HER CITIZENSHIP. BUT IT IS INTERESTING. YOU LEARN THESE THINGS WHOSE — THINGS WHEN YOU DO THE RESEARCH THAT YOU ADD TEXTURE AND COLOR TO YOUR ANCESTORS’ LIVES. YOU ARE FROM THE NORTH HILLS GEOLOGIST KITCHEN STILL COME TO THE CONFERENCE. CAN I JOIN THE NORTH HILLS GEOLOGISTS. YOU SURE CAN JOIN. A MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ANYONE OR ANYWHERE IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA OR ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AND THERE ARE OTHER GENOLOGY SOCIETIES AS WELL. SO FOLKS, THERE ARE IS USUALLY ONE OR TWO IN THE COUNTY.
