Here's one of the most exciting announcements we've had in a long time. Megan Smolenyak, one of America's top genealogical researchers and speakers, will be participating in our Legacy Family Tree webinar series.
On Wednesday, April 25, Megan will present Reverse Genealogy: Finding the Living:
Although genealogy is at its heart the study of long-deceased ancestors, connecting with living relatives has become almost as important to many family historians. Some seek living kin in an effort to track down family photos; others do it to find family history playmates, plan reunions or identify DNA project participants. Whatever the motivation, one of the most addicting aspects of genealogy is the thrill of finding distant cousins, or in some cases, parents, children or siblings. But this "reverse genealogy" (working from the past to the present) has its own special challenges and requires the researcher to be part genealogist and part private investigator. This presentation covers proven techniques for tracing 20th and 21st century friends and relatives from the past to the present.
The live webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 2PM Eastern U.S., so register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day.
