Family history seminar Aug. 3 at state history center

RICHMOND — FRANKFORT — Nationally acclaimed genealogist J. Mark Lowe, a specialist in Kentucky and Tennessee family-history research, will be the presenter at the Kentucky Genealogical Society’s 38th annual seminar on Aug. 3 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort.

Lowe will share his expertise, along with his southern style and sense of humor, to presentations on four topics: sharpening research skills, plotting new strategies, tracing landless ancestors, and learning about ancestors through burial customs and cemetery stories.

With 40 years of experience in family history research, Lowe is known regionally and nationally for his insight into finding and using often-overlooked records.

He is an instructor for the Institute for Genealogical and Historical Research at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala., the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, and the Regional In-depth Genealogical Studies Alliance. He has won numerous awards, including designation as a fellow of the Utah Genealogical Association for his outstanding contributions to the field, and has authored many published articles and reviews.

The seminar will run from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. The registration fee is $50 for society members and $60 for others. Lunch is included for those who register by July 26. Because seating is limited, registrations will be honored in the order received.

Seminar details and a registration form can be found at www.KentuckyGenealogicalSociety.org. Send inquiries by e-mail to KentuckyGenealogicalSociety@gmail.com or by U.S. Postal Service to KGS, PO Box 153, Frankfort, KY 40602.
