The weekend opens on Friday, November 4 for a 2-hour workshop on Maps! Wonderful Maps!
"Maps enable genealogists to understand more about an ancestor's migration, community, and occupation. In this two-hour hands-on workshop, students will learn about traditional and online resources for finding historical, topographical, birds-eye view, and other maps, how to interpret the maps’ symbols and notations, and how to correlate other information with map data to place an ancestor in time and place.
"In on-line demonstrations, students will see some of the myriad sites for finding and downloading appropriate maps. For hands-on exercises, students will be provided with hard copies of maps, documents, and other tools to be used in correlating deeds, censuses, newspaper articles, or other documents with maps to solve genealogical problems using various kinds of maps, from deed plats to land ownership maps to panoramic maps. Demonstrations and exercises will include a mix of rural and urban problems and solutions." (Sayre & Sayre Lecture Topics, http://www.sayreandsayre.com/pdf_files/Sayre_Joint_Lectures.pdf)

If you have never heard these wonderful presenters speak, you are really missing out. The Sayres are both Certified Genealogists (CG), Certified Genealogical Lecturers (CGL) and Fellows of the Utah Genealogical Association (FUGA). They both have recently broadcast webinars for the Board for Certification of Genealogy (BCG); Richard's topic was Finding Evidence of Kinship in Military Records and Pamela's was Enough is Enough. Or Is It? Visit Family Tree Webinars at http://familytreewebinars.com/bcg to get a preview of those presentations and to see for yourself what wonderful presenters they are.
Both the workshop and seminar will be held at the La Quinta Inn & Suites - Reid Park, 102 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ. Out of town guests (or anyone not wishing to drive home after the seminar) may book a room at the hotel for a reduced nightly rate.
