Finding the elusive maiden name of the women who married the men in your family tree can be daunting. She’s often just “Mrs. Smith” But her maiden name can be discerned perhaps with information you have discovered that needs analysis. Through the use of three case studies, Tina will provide clues, in the form of evidence, to first reveal the woman’s first name then her prove her maiden name. Through analysis of evidence, an “argument” will be made for a relationship where no records, including marriage records, have been found. This talk will help other genealogists break down those “brick walls.”
Tina Post Bio:
Local genealogist, Tina Post, is the granddaughter of Polish and Greek immigrants. Her first interest in genealogy began as a child wanting to know more about her grandparents’ families and past. Twenty one years ago (1998), she began by speaking with older family members, mixing an interest in family stories with history and details.
Tina graduated from Boston University’s Genealogical Research Certificate Program in 2017. She is a member of the National Genealogical Society (NGS), the New England Historical Genealogical Society (NEHGS), the Genealogical Society Bergen County, NJ (GSBC), the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B), the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and the Capital District Genealogical Society (CDGS).
Many people are surprised to learn there is a beautiful art gallery located in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery that displays artwork and is the setting for professionally guided art classes throughout the year. The concept of an art gallery in a cemetery is a bit different to say the least. The Gallery serves as a means for local artists to create, exhibit and sell their work. The museum quality tracks and cables are strong and secure, offering a safe and attractive means to display art.
If you are an artist in the Capital District interested in exhibiting work, contact our Gallery Manager Kelly Grimaldi at [email protected], or (518) 350-7679.
Exhibits run for 60 days and the artist is offered the opportunity to hold an artist’s reception for friends and family. We also encourage group shows.
