TAHLEQUAH – The Oklahoma Genealogical Society is expected to present a webinar titled “Native American Genealogy & Research” with Rick Fogarty from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CST on Oct. 20.

In past years at the State Fair OGS booth, the majority of inquiries we receive concerned Native American ancestry.

“We want to reach out to our Native American Agencies, as well as schools, social organizations, genealogical and historical societies, etc.; for you to have the opportunity to disseminate this information to any who may be interested in the Webinar,” an OGS release states. “Rick is a professional genealogist and lecturer in Hazlet, New Jersey; a third-generation genealogist with deep Oklahoma roots and a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. He specializes in Native American tribal, adoption, and DNA/forensic genealogical research.”

Fogarty has attended the Boston University forensic genealogy course, the Forensic Genealogy Institute genetic genealogy course, Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, and the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research. He is a life member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and instructor on Native American tribal genealogy for several institutes while lecturing frequently on genealogical topics.

Registration for the Oct. 20 webinar is through www.okgensoc.org for a $20 fee. The event is limited to 100 webinar links.
