English civil and church records as well as census records make doing research back to 1837 feasible. Pre-1837 requires more skill and a greater knowledge of the large variety of little-known resources to conduct this research, which can bring you back to the 1600's and beyond. Presented by Clair Brisson-Banks. Sponsored by the Wichita Genealogical Society.

Throughout Wichita's history a legend has grown that West Wichita - Delano - encompassed all of the Wichita area's rowdiness and crime. But the truth is more complicated - and more interesting: Delano wasn't so anarchic, and Wichita wasn't quite so respectable. Join Keith Wondra, Curator of the Boot Hill Museum, for a look at the mythology of West Wichita and the very real history that lies beneath.

Researching a property, be it an old home, a new business, or a section of pastureland, can do more than tell us the history of a space. It can also build a human connection to the people who came before us and the times in which they lived. This talk shares creative ways to study document and assemble relevant narratives from maps, deeds, newspapers, and often unsought or unknown resources. This is ideal for those new to seeking out family and community stories, and helpful for those stymied by a dead end. Presented by Diana Staresinic in conjunction with Kansas Humanities. Sponsored by the Wichita Genealogical Society.
