RECONSTRUCTING FAMILY INFORMATION WHEN YOU START WITH ALMOST NOTHING - A CASE STUDY
Speaker - Janice Sellers
Janice Sellers is a professional genealogist who specializes in newspapers and Jewish research. She is the editor of two genealogy journals and a member of APG, Genealogical Speakers Guild, and San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society. She has volunteered at the Oakland Family History Center for eleven years.
With sparse clues and very little solid information, one wonders where to begin researching their family history. In this case study Janice will demonstrate techniques and sourvcs that enabled a researcher, beginning with only the slimmest of remembered information, to reconstruct six generations of a family that emigrated from Eastern Europe to rural western Pennsylvania in the mid-1800s.
Janice has been on our program before and has been very well received. We are pleased to have her back once again.
Meetings are held at 10 AM at the Oakland Family History Center Library. All persons interested in genealogy are welcome to attend.
