The Oklahoma Genealogical Society will present a special program entitled,

“Native American Genealogy & Research” with Rick Fogarty on Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. by Webinar.

Fogarty is a professional genealogist and lecturer in Hazlet, N.J.; a third-generation genealogist with deep Oklahoma roots and a citizen of the Muscogee Creek Nation, according to a press release. He specializes in Native American ancestry, tribal adoption, and DNA/forensic genealogical research.

Registration for the program will be through www.okgensoc.org. The cost for an access link to the program is $20. The program will be limited to 100 Webinar links for maximum attendance, according to the release. OGS is an Educational Organization supported by our membership fees, educational programs and charitable contributions. 

In past years at the State Fair OGS booth, the majority of inquiries we receive are concerning Native American ancestry, according to the release. 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.
