THE PROS AND CONS OF PARTICIPATING IN A GLOBAL FAMILY TREE

Speaker Stephen Young will discuss his long involvement in conducting his own family history research and 30+ year career with FamilySearch, and demonstrate the features and facility of using its online global family tree. Preservation and accuracy in research are prime motivations in participating with relatives (known and unknown) to collaboratively provide a complete record of our ancestors.

Stephen C. Young was born and raised in London, Ontario. Much of his earliest and ongoing research focuses on his Young family from England who immigrated to the Toronto area in the 1830s and were amongst the earliest pioneers in Hibbert Twp., Perth County and West Wawanosh Twp., Huron County. He also has Loyalist roots in the Niagara Peninsula. Steve earned a Bachelors degree at Brigham Young University in Family and Local History (1985) and a Masters degree in American History (emphasis in Public History) at Bowling Green State University (1990) in Ohio. An employee of FamilySearch since 1988, he is currently a Deputy Chief Genealogical Officer and project manager for FamilySearch.
