January 26, 2023 Meeting.

Please join us on January 27, 2023 at 10:00 am, as our own Cynthia Turk will talk about “Tree Surgery.”

Tree surgery is the repair of a family tree which has gone awry.  When that happens, it needs to be fixed immediately.  If a tree is online, it needs to be either repaired or removed.  Reasons for the problem include using others’ family trees without fact checking and not following the Genealogical Proof Standard.  Learn about how to perform surgery on your family tree.

Cynthia began doing genealogy about 1992 and started taking occasional clients at the request of the local library in 1995. She is an avid genealogist and volunteers locally. She is the current president of Lake County Genealogical Society. She has been project leader for many indexing projects with local societies. She lectures on a variety of topics. After rigorous evaluation of her work, she has attained the credential Certified Genealogist®. This means she will work to the Genealogy Proof Standards as set forth by the Board for Certification of Genealogists® and adhere to its code of ethics.
