Bringing Your Ancestor to Life

Webinar Abstract: This lecture will ask you to put on your “CSI” hat and use your detective skills and critical thinking abilities to solve a genealogical research problem when little information is known. Starting with a newspaper death announcement, a little social history, and a photograph, we will create a series of questions that need answers to bring our subject to life. Using the clues found in a death announcement, you will learn the strategies needed to identify the records and resources that will help solve the unknown and bring an ancestor to life.
