Winter Webinar – Peggy Lauritzen

January 6 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Peggy Lauritzen

The Scots-Irish Migration Into North America

Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to the British Isles. Some have even heard that their background was “Scotch-Irish.” We will focus on who these people were and where they came from in the British Isles.


Peggy Clemens Lauritzen, AG, FOGS, was involved in genealogy before she was even born. The daughter of avid genealogists, she was spending time in courthouses and cemeteries while other children were playing on swings and going to the beach.  The love of her family’s history has never left her. With her experience serving as a former and current Family History Director, she frequently speaks at genealogical societies, workshops, seminars, and webinars where she loves bringing genealogy to life. Some of those would include The Ohio Genealogical Society, The Ohio State University, Brigham Young University, and many other state and local genealogy societies. She has recently completed several Legacy QuickGuides on Appalachia and is a well-knownwebinar presenter. In 2018, she was awarded the title of Fellow of the Ohio Genealogical Society and received the Laura G. Prescott Award for Exemplary Service in Genealogy. Peggy is an instructor at Ancestry Academy, Family Tree University, a columnist for Reminisce magazine, and a former researcher for Ancestry ProGenealogists.
