Genealogy Blogging Beat – Friday, 1 July 2016

July 1– 3, 1863. After the Southern success at Chancellorsville, VA, Confederate general Robert E. Lee led his forces on an invasion of the North, initially targeting Harrisburg, PA. As Union forces moved to counter the invasion, the battle lines were eventually formed at Gettysburg, PA, in one of the Civil War’s most crucial battles. On the climactic third day of the battle (July 3), Lee ordered an attack on the center of the Union line, later to be known as Pickett’s Charge. The 15,000 rebels were repulsed, ending the Battle of Gettysburg. After the defeat, Lee’s forces retreated back to Virginia, listing more than one-third of the troops as casualties in the failed invasion. Union general George Meade initially failed to pursue the retreating rebels, allowing Lee’s army to escape across the rain-swollen Potomac River. With more than 50,000 casualties, this was the worst battle of the Civil War.

FREE Webinar Recording - Circles or Triangles? What Shape is Your DNA? presented by Diahan Southard - “As we march forward into another year of genetic genealogy much is being discovered about the ways in which we can analyze our autosomal DNA data. There is a hot debate over two seemingly competing ideas: the DNA Circle, or the Triangulation method. The DNA Circle was pioneered by AncestryDNA and relies on small shared segments and complete family trees. The Triangulation method requires a chromosome browser and detailed calculations of shared amounts of DNA. We will cover questions like, Which is the best route to take? Do I need a chromosome browser? How can I use these methods in my own genealogy? Autosomal DNA is an ever changing field, this lecture will cover the latest methods of analysis and interpretation for the non-scientist genetic genealogist.” Click here to view for FREE through July 5th - via Legacy Family Tree Webinars

Genealogy Blogging Beat – Thursday, 30 June 2016

June 30, 1917. Born at Brooklyn, NY, Horne began singing with the chorus line at the Cotton Club in Harlem at age 16. A career on Broadway and in Hollywood followed in rapid succession and she soon became the symbol for African-American actors and singers trying to break the color barrier. She found success with both black and white audiences, although she did face her share of racial prejudice throughout her lifetime. Best remembered for her nightclub and Broadway performances of torch songs, jazz standards and classics like her signature “Stormy Weather,” she died at New York, NY, on May 9, 2010.
