September 24 Meeting

We are pleased to announce that the speaker at our September meeting will be Sunny Jane Morton. Sunny is an internationally-known genealogy educator and award-winning writer and editor. Her lectures are packed with try-this-now strategies and resources and delivered with humor and plenty of motivating examples and stories. Sunny has written two books: How to Find Your Family History in U.S. Church Records, with Harold Henderson, CG, and Story of My Life: A Workbook for Preserving Your Legacy.

Sunny will present Collateral Kin: Indirect Routes to Direct Ancestors: The most direct route to information about direct ancestors may be through other relatives and in-laws. Three concise case studies demonstrate the value of researching these “collateral kin.” See how collateral research helped prove an ancestor’s parents, solve a migration mystery and fill gaps in an ancestor’s biography.
