Members of the Lone Star Chapter Association for Professional Genealogists will be available for free
15-minute consultations on a specific genealogical question. The appointment consists of discussion of a specific research question between you and an APG member who will do his/her best to offer advice on how to help solve the problem. No reservations, appointments are set up on first-come, first-served basis.
To participate in the Ancestor Roadshow please print this linked registration form
, complete it, and bring it to the conference along with any pertinent documentation. At the conference visit the Lone Star Chapter APG booth to be assigned a consultation time slot. At the time assigned an experienced genealogist will discuss your problem and offer research suggestions that may help further your research.
Due to the time limitations it is necessary to focus on a very specific research question. For example:
There were four men with the same name in the same place at the same time. How can I determine which was my ancestor?
I need help determining my great-grandmother's maiden name. The documents I already have are [provide a brief list of sources here with details provided on the document].
My ancestor served in the Civil War. I have his pension file. What other records might be available to add to his story in this time-frame?
I can trace this family in every census but one. What techniques might I use to find them?
Questions are not limited to these topics. These are just examples to show how you might focus on a very specific question. Lone Star Chapter APG members will be available to assist as needed in focusing your question.
