Webinar: Genealogy Research of Mysterious Relatives
Tuesday, October 27
Webinar: Genealogy Research of Mysterious Relatives  (Special Event)
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Sponsored by The Dallas Library
Every genealogist has that mysterious relative – the ubiquitous ‘cousin’ who was always around with no obvious family connection. As genealogy researchers, we cannot figure out who this person is and how they are related to our family. Finding mysterious relatives on a census record; an entry in a family bible; or old letters can yield invaluable insight into a family’s genealogy. Learn how to analyze and connect these mysterious relatives to your family history using census and vital records, newspapers, maps, etc.; contextual clues; “FAN club” methodology; and more.
