Northern Waters Genealogical Society Meeting: “Researching Your War of 1812 Ancestors”

February 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Northern Waters Genealogical Society invites you to their next meeting on Tuesday, February 7, 2023, 2-3 pm, at the Boulder Junction Community Center, 5392 Park Street. A short business meeting will follow the presentation. There will be a Zoom option for those who would like to attend virtually.

This month’s program is “Researching Your War of 1812 Ancestor” featuring speaker Thomas MacEntee by recorded webinar. The War of 1812, often called America’s Second Revolution, left behind a valuable set of records that have proven valuable for genealogical research. Many of these records can help solve the “pre-1850 census” issues when only the head of household was named in the US federal census. Participants will learn about the War of 1812, the major record sets of benefit to genealogists, how to identify service information such as location and military section of service, and which records are available to access online.

Thomas MacEntee. a genealogy professional based in the United States, is also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder, and more. Thomas has over 42 years of experience researching family history. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at the popular Genealogy Bargains website. Thomas describes himself as a lifelong-learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

This program is free and open to the public. All persons interested in genealogy and family history, from beginner to advanced, are welcome to attend. For questions or to register for the Zoom link, please call 715-686-7339.
