The Marriage of the Waters: The Erie Canal and the Opening of the Midwest
by Annette Burke Lyttle

The Erie Canal revolutionized 19th-century travel and offered our ancestors a high-speed route to the Midwest. It made settlement of the Old Northwest Territories economically possible by providing an efficient means of exporting agricultural products to the markets and ports of the east. But it was also one of the most challenging and fascinating projects ever undertaken in America.

Annette Burke Lyttle is a professional genealogist specializing in online and repository research, and genealogical education and writing. She loves helping people find and tell their family stories.

SCGS PROGRAM: LUNCH & LEARN
Saturday, June 8 from 12 pm - 3:30 pm

Presenter: Kalani Mondoy
1:00 to 2:00 p.m. - “Filipino Genealogy Research”
According to the 2010 census, the Asian population grew faster than any other race group over the last decade and counted 3.4 million Filipinos. With the popularity of DNA testing encouraging people to find out about their ancestral background, Filipinos are left wondering how would they find out about their ancestors. Either being the immigrant or having recent immigrant ancestors who have not had a long history in the U.S.A. is a challenge. Learn what is necessary to do research in the Philippines, what to expect, and what type of records are easily accessible and are the most useful.

Kalani Mondoy started genealogy 30 years ago after having a family reunion that left questionable origins of his Filipino grandparents. Although most of his time is spent using DNA to help make genealogical connections, he continues to lend his expertise in specific areas involving genealogy research. Helping adoptees of Filipino and Polynesian descent, explaining to others what their DNA results mean and how to research their ancestors, and working on translations from old Hawaiian and Portuguese language newspapers.

Presenters: Hannah Yang and Janelle Sangalang
2:30 - 4:30 p.m. - “Chinese American Museum’s Family History Workshop”
This workshop will explore family activities that encourage recording and interpreting family
histories through intergenerational exchange. The instructors will provide a brief introduction
about the museum and discuss how to facilitate your own family history.

Hannah Yang is the Associate Curator of the Chinese American Museum.
Janelle Sangalang is the Coordinator of Education and Programs at the Chinese American
Museum

All materials will be provided; participants will receive a copy of the museum’s publication “Family History Scrapbook,” which features twelve engaging activities. To RSVP, email rsvp@camla.org with the subject line "Family History Workshop." Visit CAM’s website for other public programs and events.
