Breathing Life Into Your Ancestor

September 17, 2022 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Speaker: Carol Darrow

After you’ve quoted birth, marriage and death dates, what else can you say about an ancestor you’ve never known? How can you put them into historical context? Digging deeply into sources such as census records, geographic location, ethnicity, occupation, newspapers, county histories and photographs of your ancestors or their neighbors can help you breathe life into your ancestor’s life story.
