“19th Century America – Cultural Changes and Their Effects on Records” By – Sylvia Tracy-Doolos @ Calvary Bible Church
May 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm


America in the 19th century saw geographic, cultural, and historical changes that affected the records that were created.

While this was true for all Americans, it was especially true for women, African-Americans, and immigrants. We’ll take a broad look at the 19th century to understand these changes.


Sylvia has over 40 years of genealogical experience as a researcher, teacher, lecturer, and writer. She is a member and officer of the Colorado Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the International Society of British Genealogy and Family History (ISBGFH), and Wales, Ireland, Scotland, England Family History Society (WISE), plus a member of APG, CGS, NGS, VGS, and others. She has a BA in History with a minor focusing on linguistics to better understand the role of language change and its effect on record keeping.

This is an in-person meeting, but we are going to try and make it available as a hybrid. If you are unable to make it in person, please register at
