The recording of tonight's webinar by the Board for Certification of Genealogists and Shellee Morehead, PhD, CG, "My 20 Year Mystery – Finding family origins with Y-DNA" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/bcg for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Beginner genealogists often research their surname origins first, and get stuck at a certain point. The skills needed to surmount these early brick walls come in time, with study and practice, and the increasing availability of DNA and online resources. In this webinar, Shellee describes her brick wall ancestor, Samuel Morehead, of Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, and the techniques that she used to identify his parentage and place of origin. Sticky problems like this require a variety of approaches including Y-DNA analysis, the FAN club, tax, land and court records, censuses, historical analysis and mapping techniques, to name a few. She will detail the clues acquired from all of these methods as she developed an hypothesis to satisfy the Genealogical Proof Standard.
