Bring Tools and Friends to Raise a Family Tree

April 16, 2024 @ 1:00 pm

This presentation will discuss how to build out family trees using a combination of tools in collaboration with fellow genealogists and descendants. The findings are based on a decades-long effort to solve a brick wall involving consecutive generations of out-of-wedlock births. The presentation will discuss how to leverage a variety of DNA tests and techniques, traditional research and family lore, surname projects and collaborative family tree websites to reconnect people.
