You can watch both parts on Facebook.  For the second part you may have to log in again.

FamilySearch Family Tree contains many duplicate records, but finding and resolving them is not as simple as it may sound.  In these classes you'll learn how to find obvious and less obvious duplicates, how to tell if two records really really are duplicates, and how to merge duplicates.

After years on the sidelines, Kathryn Grant began doing family history and discovered that she loved it.  Her specialty is helping new family historians find success—and maybe even avoid some of the mistakes she's made.  Kathryn teaches Sunday classes and webinars for the BYU Family History Library. and also presents at the Riverton FamilySearch Library Saturday Seminars and other family history events. Her column on family history ran in the Nauvoo Times for about a year and is still available online at Click Here .  In addition, she is a regular contributor to the FamilySearch blog .  Kathryn works as a technical writer and instructional designer with a focus on usability and process improvement.  Besides family history, she loves uplifting music, thought-provoking books, and fresh raspberries.  She is the daughter of Jay and Marilyn Grant who many of us know as the Directors of the Family History Training Center in Orem Utah that so many Family History Missionaries went through.  Jay also taught many classes for our UVTAGG meetings.

All meetings of the Group are open to the public with the goal of helping people use technology to further their family and personal history.  Details and the link to watch online are on the UVTAGG webpage https://www.uvtagg.org/   and on the UVTAGG Facebook page.  The blog and press releases are at http://blog.uvtagg.org/  and you can subscribe there to receive them by email.  Members of the Group ($15/year) receive additional benefits such as the  monthly email newsletter TAGGology and access to the more than 400 videos of past presentations and classes.  TAGGology contains a wealth of information for Temple and Family History Consultants and free sample copies can be requested on the UVTAGG website.  Officers are Gerhard Ruf, President; Laurie Castillo, 1st VP; Don Snow, 2nd VP; Don Engstrom, Secretary; Marilyn Thomsen, TAGGology Newsletter Editor; Rayanne Melick, Finance Officer; Don Engstrom, Membership Officer; Bruce Merrill and Jackson Andersen, Video and Librarians; Eileen Phelps, Special Projects Coordinator; Carol Hill, FamilySearch Facebook Coordinator; and Rick Wightman, Chris Stevenson, Brent Nelson, Jerry Castillo, and Rick Klemetson, Broadcast Specialists and Webmasters.  The Group is in its 30th year.  For further information contact President Gerhard Ruf at pres@uvtagg.org  (801-225-6106), or 1st VP Laurie Castillo at gengal@comcast.net , or 2nd VP Don Snow at snowd@math.byu.edu .

Main presentation 10:00-11:00 am:    Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, on SCHOOL DAZE
This lecture will focus on a little-known source for aging and placing our ancestors. S
chool records can be an amazing way of putting our families into place, especially when there may be no vital records.  Not all of our ancestors had the opportunity for education, but those who did may have left behind valuable records.  Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, was involved in genealogy before she was even born. The daughter of avid genealogists, she was spending time in courthouses and cemeteries while other children were playing on swings and going to the beach. The love of her family's history has never left her. With her experience as a former Family History Center Director, she is a frequent speaker at genealogical societies, workshops, seminars, and webinars where she loves bringing genealogy to life. Some of those include The Ohio Genealogical Society, The Ohio State University, Brigham Young University, and many other state and local genealogy societies. She has recently completed several Legacy QuickGuides on Appalachia, which are available on www.legacyfamilytree.com and  www.amazon.com.

For the class from 11:10 am-Noon Peggy Lauritzen will discuss HIDDEN GEMS IN THE FAMILYSEARCH WIKI and this will also be broadcast on Facebook.  Log on again to watch it
