THE MYSTERIOUS MR. MANLEY: HOW DO YOU PROVE SOMETHING DIDN’T HAPPEN

 

            Guest Speaker: Sue Fialkoff

 

Sue Fialkoff will describe her long search for a young relative’s second marriage a century ago.  Did Eloise Metzger marry a Mr. Manley, as records suggested?  If not, why did Eloise start using the name Manley?  This program will touch on helpful research strategies including refining you research questions, analyzing negative evidence, using non-traditional sources, and placing your research into historical context.

 

Sue is a graduate of the Boston University Certificate program in genealogical research and the ProGen genealogical study program.  She is a lifetime member of the JGS of greater Washington and edits Mishpacha, JGSGW’s quarterly  publication.
