Bagging a live one is often a bigger rush than finding the dead ones. Bagging a live one who knows something about family history is gold. In this webinar Mary will show how you can find distant relatives, perhaps ones you never knew existed. These people may not be active researchers, but might be the ones who inherited the family bible or box of photos, or maybe they can pass on some stories Grandma told them. Collecting and organizing the bits of data – a birthdate, a location, a maiden name – will help you connect with a “new” cousin. If you are as lucky as Mary has been, some of these new cousins will soon become old friends. Mary Roddy has been a genealogist for 13 years. She is the author of numerous articles published in Family Chronicle Magazine and Internet Genealogy. She is currently working on a novel based on stories of her ancestors and their associates which she discovered in her genealogical research. Members and guests are welcome to attend.
