Searching for Ancestors "Off the Grid"
When and Where:
9:30 a.m. at the Godfrey Library
Having trouble finding an ancestor who disappeared?
Many of our research requests come from people seeking information about a family member who left the family and whose whereabouts were unknown, or someone whom the family never talked about. Why did this person leave and where did they end up?
Godfrey Director Beth Mariotti and Godfrey board member Cathi Maxim will give examples of research that turned up missing ancestors. They will share strategies for locating and tracking these ancestors, and will provide sources that can be used for this type of research.
Genealogy Club is free to Godfrey Premium members or $10 a session for all others. The club meets on the first Saturday of each month (except July and August).
Participants will have time after the club meeting to do research at the library. Bring your laptop!
