OGF Vortrag: Ahnen- und Familienforschung – Ein Rundumblick  (Meetings)
7:30 pm
Online
Oldenburgische Gesellschaft für Familienkunde e.V.
Irgendwann kommt jeder einmal an den Punkt, wo er sich fragt: Wo komme ich her? Warum wohnen und leben wir eigentlich hier und nicht an den Orten unserer Vorfahren. Die Familien- und Ahnenforschung ist ein sehr spannendes Hobby, dass ein wenig Lust des Rätselns und Forschens in der eigenen Familie und darüberhinaus sowie eine gute Spürnase erfordert. Die Neugier liegt bei uns Menschen meistens ja schon im Blut – Beste Voraussetzungen. Aber Vorsicht. Oftmals wird dieses Hobby zu einer “positiven” Sucht, neben dem üblichen Stammbaum geht die Suche weiter nach unbekannt ausgewanderten Familienangehörigen oder den Lebensumständen und Gründen, wie sie gelebt haben. Überraschungen, positive wie negative Erfahrungen oder Enttäuschungen unserer Ahnen zu erfahren und nachzuempfinden ist eine echte Zeitreise.

OGF Vortrag: Vielleicht ausgewandert?  (Meetings)
7:30 pm
Online
Oldenburgische Gesellschaft für Familienkunde e.V.
Genealogen kennen “Tote Punkte”, wenn es bei der Erforschung der Ahnen einfach nicht weiter geht. Auf “tote Punkte” trifft der Familiengeschichtsforscher aber auch immer mal, wenn wer wissen will, was aus den Nachkommen eines Ahns geworden ist. Also “Wo sind die Geschwister der Urgroßmutter abgeblieben?” Gibt es Lücken im Sterberegister? Oder sind sie doch ausgewandert, wie in der Familie gemunkelt wird? Oft hilf ein Blick in die Datenbank “Auswanderer aus dem Großherzogtum Oldenburg”, und man findet verloren geglaubte Verwandte in Ohio, USA, in Blumenau in Brasilien oder auf dem Balkan wieder. Norbert Diekmann, einer der Mitarbeiter, die die Datenbank betreuen, stellt die Möglichkeiten der Datenbank  vor, erläutert aber auch die Grenzen, die unvollständige und ungenaue Quellen setzen.

OGF Vortrag: 80 – 30 – 110: Familienforschung im 20. Jahrhundert  (Meetings)
7:30 pm
Online
Oldenburgische Gesellschaft für Familienkunde e.V.
Ob Kirchenbücher des 17. Jahrhunderts, Ortsfamilienbücher oder Standesamtsunterlagen des 19. Jahrhunderts – der Zugang zu historischen Quellen war nie so einfach wie heute. Vieles ist auch bequem online abrufbar, gratis oder gegen Entgelt. Für manch einen Forscher fangen die Probleme an, wenn die Fristen des Personenstandsgesetzes greifen und sonst gerne genutzte Quellen nicht zugänglich sind. Wie komme ich an Daten aus dem 20. Jahrhundert? Welche Quellen kann ich nutzen und welche Informationen können sie mir liefern? Diesen Fragen geht Marion Weber in ihrem Vortrag nach.
