Hunting For Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals - free replay of today's webinar now available for limited time


The recording of today's webinar by Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG, "Hunting For Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals" is now available to view at for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois. The United States records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover in Germany. This lecture will detail how his town of origin and parents were identified, in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated. Complicating factors in this case are 1) very few records available for the person in question, 2) multiple people with the same given and last names, Steren is often confused with the common surname Stern.
