Join us in the Metroplex Complex for another great annual conference - In Person!  Join us and spend a day with Cheri Hudson Pasey.   

Cheri is a Professional Genealogist, Instructor, Writer, and Speaker and the owner of Carolina Girl Genealogy, LLC. Cheri is the host of the genealogy chat show GenFriends and is a genealogical researcher.

Recently she has been honored to join a team of genealogical researchers for the U.S. Army in their effort to repatriate Soldiers who have been listed as Killed in Action. By using her skills to locate next of kin, it is hoped positive identification through DNA testing will occur when remains are discovered and our war heroes can return home to their families.

Cheri is a member of the National Genealogical Society, Association of Professional Genealogists, The NextGen Genealogy Network, APG-SL Chapter where she serves as the chapter liaison, The South Carolina Historical Society, The South Carolina Genealogical Society, The North Carolina Genealogical Society, and several South Carolina Genealogy Societies. She currently serves as the Program Chair and is a past President of the Grand Strand Genealogy Club. She also serves as the Treasurer for the Geneabloggers Tribe and serves on committees for the Association of Professional Genealogists and the Federation of Genealogical Societies.

Cher will share expert genealogy tips and insight during these four sessions.

They Lived Where? How to tackle New-to-You research locations

Finding a branch from our tree that lived in a place we have never researched can leave us clueless about where to begin. Learn methods and strategies for understanding the records, history, and best practices for tackling a new research location.

Analyzing Probate Records. Follow the clues left after death.

Probate Records can shed light on your ancestors even when there’s no will. Learn how to use these records to find clues and help answer your research questions.

Diving into Directories: Ways to find family and clues between the pages

City Directories once were where people went to look for information on people, businesses, and locations. Today we can use them in our research to locate addresses and find clues to ore records that may hold important information.

Evidence: Direct, Indirect, or Negative? It Depends!

Do you know the difference between Director, Indirect, and Negative evidence? Need clarification about why it matters? In this session, examples of each of the three types of genealogy evidence will be presented, along with explanations on how to recognize and use each to climb your family tree.
