Genealogy

Beginning with Your Ancestry DNA Matches

Instructor Michael Neill

This day-long session will discuss preparing for your Ancestry DNA test results, what matches mean and do not mean, why not every “blood relative” is a DNA match, strategies for sorting your matches, determining how matches are related (where possible), analyzing “shared matches,” determining connections of those who do not respond, and why you should try and figure out all your matches even if they aren’t on the family you really took the test to learn more about.

Michael John Neill has a master’s degree in mathematics, is on the faculty of Carl Sandburg College, and has been actively researching his own genealogy for thirty-five years. He has lectured at genealogy seminars across the United States, leads an annual research trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and writes Genealogy Tip of the Day at www.genealogytipoftheday.com

Lincoln Film Series

Instructor Tom Best

You have certainly read many books on Abraham Lincoln, but how does the life of Lincoln translate into Hollywood films from the past and present? In this course, you will have the chance to engage in a viewing and a lively discussion of some of the classic Lincoln films dating from 1939 to 2012. For instance, what elements of the “mythical or iconic Lincoln” appear most often in film, and why? How do films of various historical eras about Lincoln reflect their times as much as the factual Lincoln?

The first two classes will be three hours to accommodate an intro, viewing of the films, and a post-viewing discussion. The final film, due to its length, will call for a class that is 3 hours and 15 minutes. You can sign up for one, two, or all three films. 

October 15, 9 a.m. to Noon, Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) staring Henry Fonda; Directed by John Ford; and Produced by Darryl Zanuck—quite an elite lineup!  This fictional film about Lincoln’s early days in New Salem and Springfield is based on Lincoln’s famous Almanac Trial in Beardstown in 1858.  How was this “humble”, and yet, “heroic” Lincoln in keeping with America’s sense of politics and society in the 1930s?   

October 22, 9 a.m. to Noon, Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940) staring Raymond Massey. This film covers the life of Lincoln from his boyhood to his race for the presidency. Based on the popular writings of Carl Sandburg and a popular play, this film and the character of Lincoln offers a fascinating assessment of Lincoln and America on the eve of World War II and the threat of Nazi Germany. 

October 29, 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Lincoln (2012) staring Daniel Day Lewis. The most recent major Hollywood Production was drawn from Doris Kearns Goodwin’s best seller Team of Rivals. Examining a more personal side of Lincoln than perhaps was ever developed on film, Lincoln’s political instincts, relationship with his family, and the fight for the 13th Amendment ending slavery are the highlights of this blockbuster. This is a 3 hour and 15 minute class.
