The Ventura County Genealogical Society presents a Free Family History Presentation Online with Zoom
Saturday, April 16, 2022, 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Presenter: Sara Cochran
“Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Is this Genealogy or the Cha-Cha?”
Revisiting and reevaluating our early research and home sources of information might seem like a waste of time, but often, it’s the key to getting past a roadblock in our research. Sara will discuss techniques for finding new clues in records we already have, and look at several small case studies to see the value of taking the time to go backwards in order to go forwards.
Sara is a full-time professional genealogist with over twenty-five years of experience. Her research has taken her into nearly every State in the USA as well as Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Britain. She holds a Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, a Bachelor’s Degree in Library Science, and is an alumnus of the ProGen Study Group. She especially enjoys breaking down brick walls for her clients, discovering the stories of black sheep ancestors, and helping individuals preserve their photographic legacy.
All our monthly lectures and workshops are free to our members and the public. Non-members should request an invitation here: https://venturacogensoc.org/request-invitation-to-lecture/
