Topic : The Rest of the Story: Finding Your Family in Online Newspapers.
Speaker: Janeen Bjork
Janeen Bjork applies to genealogy the detective, analytic and presentation
skills she garnered in a 30-year career as a television researcher. Her
own family tree, and the trees she has done for friends and clients, are
richly illustrated with newspaper stories that range >from the mundane to
the sensational. She'll introduce us to some of the characters she has
discovered and to the research methods that made it possible for her to
find and preserve their legacies.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
Our "Mavens" will be available at 1:30 PM to take your genealogy questions.
