Speaker: Barbara J. Starmans Researching and Sharing Your Family’s Social History

As a genealogist, don’t you wish that you could draw up a chair by the fire at your ancestor’s house and have a cup of tea with them? Don’t you long to ask them not just the who, when or where questions, but the more important questions of how and why? By exploring the social history of their time and place, you will be able to research all the circumstances of your ancestors’ lives and to build their stories from the details you find.

Mini-presentation: Valerie Watt: Britain’s Genetic Map Reveals its Regional History

6:45-7:15 p.m. Pre-Meeting Q & A with Barbara Starmans on changes and choices related to the change in ownership of the Family Tree Maker program.
