June 25 2018 Special Meeting: Sex, Lies, and Genealogical Tape

Topic: Sex, Lies, and Genealogical Tape
Most genealogists focus their efforts on collecting names, dates, and places to grow and expand their family tree as much as possible. This is quite natural. However, a much different experience can be had by focusing one’s efforts on one ancestor at a time. By doing so, one can go beyond the questions: Who?, When?, and Where?. One can explore the far more interesting and powerful questions, WHY? and HOW? Why did our ancestors act the way that they did? How did their behavior have an impact on us? Individual-focused genealogy provides additional insights not into ancestors’ lives but our own lives as well. The truly unexpected benefit of this approach is that it broke down brick walls, allowing the speaker to push back his family tree another four generations. It also exposed the speaker to all sorts of records he might not have explored otherwise.
