Genealogy and Land Records Symposium - Beatrice
Mark your calendar now for July 15 - 16, 2011 for the Genealogy and Land Records Symposium to be held at
Southeast Community College
4771 W. Scott Road
Renowned researchers and authors from throughout the United States will make presentations on how to conduct proper research in Homestead case files. Genealogists will address the volumes of family information in Homestead records. The symposium is a partnership between Homestead National Monument of America and Southeast Community College. Information will be available soon at http://www.southeast.edu. Vendors are welcome.
If you're from a surrounding state - Iowa, Missouri, Kansas - this would be good one for you to drive in for if you want to learn more about land records research.
Family History Classes
Southeast Community College Continuing Education Center

Cynthia Monroe and Marcia Stewart will again be teaching Beginning Genealogy: Where To Start With Your Family History on Thursday evenings February 3 - 24, 2011 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Cost is $49.
Cynthia and Marcia will continue with Intermediate Genealogy: Research Your Family Tree on Wednesday evenings March 9 - 16 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Marcia has confirmed that the time listed in the course catalog is in error, so NO, you don't have to be there at 6:30 in the morning. It IS an evening class. I took this class in March this year and these ladies do a fantastic job with lots of great examples! Cost is $25.
History of Lincoln and Lincoln's Suburbs
Lincoln historian Jim McKee will be teaching his History of Lincoln class on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. at Lefler School in Lincoln. The class covers the period from 1854 through the activation of the U.S. Army airbase for World War II. The class runs from January 12 - February 23. I'm in the current class and highly recommend it. Jim's photographs of early Lincoln and Lancaster county are fantastic. Cost is $49.
McKee's class on Lincoln Suburbs will be on Thursday evenings January 13 - February 3 from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. This class will focus on University Place, Bethany, College View, Havelock, West Lincoln, Yankee Hill and Normal. Having spent much of my youth in the suburbs of Northeast Lincoln, I'm looking forward to taking this class. It will also be held at Lefler school. Cost is $29.
