Featured Speaker: Geraldine Knatz
Topic: Finding the McCormacks in Ireland Using Indirect Evidence and DNA Matches *
Sorenson Library Meeting Room
6934 Broadway Ave, Whittier CA 90606
|Decades ago, our speaker searched for the place her great-grandparents left in Ireland when they immigrated to New York in the 1880s but to no avail. Now, after completing the Genealogical Certificate program at Boston University and armed with the knowledge of genealogical standards, Knatz broke through her brick wall. Careful re-reading of documentation gathered from her relatives and a World War I letter reveals clues she had missed as a budding researcher decades ago. Her talk will center on how she used indirect evidence along with her DNA matches to solve this decades old family mystery.
