A Little About Jill
Jill Morelli, sole proprietor of Cascade Research Services, lectures and writes on genealogical topics that often transcend the more narrowly defined family history. She also provides general genealogy services and house histories in the Puget Sound and national venues. She has spoken before large and small groups and is an engaging and entertaining speaker who conveys genealogical concepts suitable to the level of the audience. She has been previously published in local, regional and national publications.
Jill writes frequently at her blog Genealogy Certification:A Personal Journey about her educational efforts to become a certified genealogist.
Jill is an architect by vocation, working for the University of Washington’s School of Medicine and has lectured across the country.
The BCGS Boutique will be there too!
Topics Jill will present
The “Push” and the “Pull”: Emigration Decision-Making in the 19th Century – from Scandinavia to the United States in the mid 1800’s: two case studies – one Norwegian and one Swedish – but interesting for anyone with European roots.
I Found My Family on the Internet! Now what do I do? – explore four major internet locations and learn what to look for to determine whether it is worth using, and analyzing the records.
Discovering the ‘Other’ Censuses: State and Non-Population Enumerations – this session will explore the US census records, and their value to researchers.
Soldiers, Spies & Farm Wives: the Changing Roles of Women During the Civil War! – more a history lecture than genealogy, but goes into the Civil War and women’s roles. Researchers with Daughters or Sons of the American Revolution connections should find this very interesting.
