This two-hour presentation focuses on clues in the genealogical records to find ancestors that may have been Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer. Stewart Blandón Traiman, MD, tells stories of many LGBTQ ancestors in the historical context of LGBTQ rights. Clues to ancestors can be found in photographs, census, newspapers, obituaries, cemeteries, military records, marriage records and LGBTQ archives around the world. The presentation is both factual and emotional in portraying LGBTQ people in the past centuries.

The second part of the presentation focuses on current genealogical software and the difficulties faced by LGBTQ and adoptive families. Sometimes the software just doesn’t fit. Stewart makes recommendations on how software needs to evolve for today’s families.

Genealogy has been an obsession for Stewart for 30 years. He began by interviewing parents, grandparents and other relatives about his roots in Nicaragua. When he married Leland Traiman 28 years ago, he took on the new adventure researching Ukrainian and Polish Jews. Stewart has researched his children's origins back to the colonial United States.

In January 2014, Stewart became a volunteer with California Genealogical Society as the editor and publisher of the monthly electronic newsletter. He joined the Board in 2015.

Stewart just launched his own genealogy practice, Six Generations.
