Listening to the Voices of our Ancestors – Going Beyond Coincidence and Synchronicity to Develop your Intuitive Genealogical Abilities

March 18, 2023 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Speaker: Megan Reilly Koepsell

When it comes to genealogy and discovering details about the lives of our ancestors, we tend to chalk similar experiences up to coincidence and luck. But is that all it is? Or is it something more? Through a series of extraordinary experiences with ancestors visiting her in dreams, and through heightened senses and feelings of inexplicable knowing, author Megan Reilly Koepsell came to realize that her ancestors were reaching out to her. In her presentation for CGS on March 18, 2023, Megan will share experiences of synchronicity and serendipity featured in her best-selling book Listening to the Voices of Our Ancestors: A Practical Manual for Developing Your Intuitive Genealogical Abilities. She will also give practical advice for helping to develop your own intuitive genealogical abilities to become aware of how your own ancestors might be working in your own research and life.
