Spreadsheets 101: Excellence in Genealogy

Presented by Mary Kircher Roddy

Are you afraid of spreadsheets because you don't know how or where to start? Or are you comfortable with spreadsheets but think there might be a trick our two out there that you don't know? In this talk, Mary will get the beginners up to speed, and share with experienced users tricks she's learned in more than 25 years of spreadsheet use as an accountant, a writer and a genealogist.

Mary Kircher Roddy

Mary Kircher Roddy, a Certified Public Accountant, has been a genealogist for 13 years, becoming interested in the subject in anticipation of an extended trip to Ireland. She earned a certificate from the Genealogy and Family History program at the University of Washington in 2005. She is an active member of the Seattle Genealogical Society, having served in multiple board positions and on the seminar and education committees and is a regular facilitator on the SGS Brick Wall panel. She lectures frequently on various genealogical topics in the Seattle area. Her articles, "Mark Golden: A Case Study in World War II Research," and "Sailing in Their Wake," were published in Family Chronicle Magazine in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Her article, "Five Tips for Online Newspaper Research," appeared in the June/July 2013 issue of Internet Genealogy. She presented her research on Mark Golden as part of the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree webinar series. She is currently working on a novel set in the San Francisco area in 1900 and 1901, based on stories of several of her ancestors and their associates which she discovered in her genealogical research.

Using the Non-Population Schedules for Evidence and Context

Presented by Jill Morelli

Agriculture, Mortality, Manufacturing, and the Defective, Delinquent & Dependent Schedules will be studied for evidence (direct and indirect) and context.

Jill Morelli

Jill Morelli is passionate about genealogy focusing on teaching/lecturing, writing and client work. Most often her genealogy clients are looking for an unusual gift for a loved one or to solve (or not!) a particular family tradition. Her life-long vocation as an architect makes her uniquely qualified to do house histories. She is familiar with the documents and reading plans but also equally familiar with the language of architecture. She lectures regularly to local and regional genealogical and non-genealogical groups. There is no more satisfying aspect of her work than getting someone as excited as she is about genealogy and their family history.
