San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society -- Monthly General Meeting
Time: 12:15 - approx 3:00 p.m.
Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) Hall
520 Dana Street
San Luis Obispo, California
Speaker: Ron Arons
Session 1: Nifty & Powerful Technologies for Genealogical Analysis & Documentation by Ron Arons. Ron will demonstrate VERY cool tools for genealogical analysis and documentation, including language translation tools, timelines, time lines with maps, genograms, mindmaps, and video capture tools.
Session 2: What's in a Name? Trouble! by Ron Arons. For years Ron Arons researched the life of his great-grandfather, who served time in Sing Sing Prison. Through the years, Ron came across records for other people with the same first and last names, born in the same time frame, who lived in the same places as his relative, and who by some stroke of luck also found trouble, either in business or with women. In this talk you will see how the Genealogical Proof Standard was used to merge and separate many identities to determine exactly how many distinct individuals these documents represented. You will also learn about names, name changes, and the reasons behind those changes. You will also learn about mind maps, a powerful technology and methodology for clearer thinking, data logging, and, most importantly, efficient and extraordinary data correlation. Specifically, many examples of mind maps created with FreeMind will be presented. This entertaining excursion into the world of trouble makers offers methodologies for truly advanced research for very challenging problems.
