Looking ahead, what do you have planned for Saturday morning, April 8? I invite you to join me to learn about “Finding Living Descendants: Tracing Your Family Forward.”
Most family trees are built by researching prior generations. This class will address the process of looking from past to present to seek out living descendants (i.e., current people who share a relationship with a specific ancestor). Also called ‘reverse genealogy’ – learn why and how to do it. Presentation will include many examples about identifying and finding individuals in the U.S.
Presenter: Gigi Hickey
When? Saturday, April 8, 10:30 am – Noon
Where? Minnesota Genealogical Society Library, 1185 N. Concord Street, South St. Paul, MN
Cost? $15 for IGSI members, $20 for non-members. (If you aren’t able to attend, you can order the class notes for $5.)
Pre-register to ensure a place in the room: www.irishgenealogical.org/
You may be asking yourself, “what makes the IGSI blog editor an authority on reverse genealogy?” The answer: circumstances/opportunity/experience.
- I’ll share what I learned in tracing the descendants of Thomas and Rose Quinn;
- I’ll tell you about researching the families of 84 soldiers who signed a World War II banner;
- I’ll explain how I tracked down descendants of Minnesota Medal of Honor recipients.
Plan now to join us!
