Genealogical Society of Broward County: 'Bring' Em Back to Life: Developing an Ancestor Profile'
A webinar presentation by George G Morgan. Morgan is president of Aha! Seminars and is an avid genealogist. He has presented and written widely on many aspects of genealogy.
In the course of genealogical research, we often become engrossed in the collection of information snippets, failing to put them into a logical perspective. We lose sight of the fact that the people we're tracing participated in the life of their historical times, led complex lives, and interacted with one another.
Organizing the information we collect into a biographical profile can help you begin to recognize character traits and decision patterns. And the profile also provides an invaluable, portable research tool that avoids your taking voluminous amounts of notes with you on research trips.
"Bring' Em Back to Life: Developing an Ancestor Profile" presents a methodology and a structured model for taking the details you collect about your ancestor and creating a biographical profile.
The Genealogical Society of Broward County's monthly meeting is held at the Alvin Sherman Library.
The program begins at 2:30 pm after the GSBC open lab (12, noon - 2 p.m.) and the Genealogical Society of Broward County business meeting.
Sponsored by the Genealogical Society of Broward County.
