TELLING YOUR ANCESTORS’ STORIES BY USING SOCIAL CONTEXT CLUES Featuring Dr. Michael Lacopo
Austin Genealogical Society
Annual Spring Seminar
Featuring: Dr. Michael Lacopo
Friday and Saturday, May 17-18
Hours of diligent searching of official documents often leaves empty holes and frustration, as you feel like there is nowhere else to look for your ancestors. Becoming more aware of the social context of the world your ancestors were living in leads to a new perspective, and often fresh sources to dig for those missing relatives.
