Learn About Descendancy Research at our October Meeting

We are all familiar with the traditional methods of learning  about our family history by researching our ancestors.  But, in the words of our next speaker, "Researching the living descendants of your ancestors can give your family history new life and excitement."
In his presentation to us, at our October 20, 2015 meeting, Michael Brophy will discuss the reasons for doing Descendancy Research, as well as give us advice on how to go about it.
Michael Brophy is a nationally known, professional genealogical researcher, heir search specialist, and lecturer, from the Boston area.He has been a board member of  Massachusetts Genealogical Council and treasurer of the New England Association of Professional Genealogists.
Mike earned his MBA from Suffolk University and BBA from UMASS-Amherst. His genealogical education includes seven certificates from the Institute of  Genealogy and Historic Research (IGHR), as well as certificates in Private Investigation and Advanced Forensic Genealogy from Boston University.
He was featured on the Irish TV series, Dead Money, a genealogy television show about heir searches. He was also hired to conduct research for the NBC television program Who Do You Think You Are?, on an episode dedicated to the family history of actress, Gwyneth Paltrow.
He has lectured on a wide variety of topics, including his specialties of New England and Irish research, at National Genealogical Society conferences and will be among the presenters at the New England Genealogical Consortium conference.
This meeting should prove to be a very interesting one. Hope that you will be able to join us on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at 10 AM, Brewster Ladies Library, on Rte 6A, Brewster. Come early for our "Meet and Greet" with tea, coffee, and donuts.
