Quarterly Business Meeting Followed by Special Presentation
Program Title: "Who is That?"
Presenter: Jean Wilcox Hibben, Ph.D., M.A.
This presentation will look at how people who show up on the census, in a will, in a deed, or in other genealogical documents might appear to be family, but may not in fact be related. It brings to the table the concept introduced by Elizabeth Shown Mills called FAN club research. A few funny stories will help to illuminate this presentation.
