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.
