We are all familiar with the traditional methods of learning about our family history by researching our ancestors. In the words of our next speaker, "Researching the living descendants of your ancestors can give your family history new life and excitement."
Michael Brophy will discuss reasons for doing Descendancy Research and advise us as to how to go about it, when he joins us at our next meeting, Tuesday, October 20, 2015. This is the program that had to be postponed from last winter, due to the everpresent snowstorms.
Michael is a professional genealogist, whose genealogical education includes seven certificates from Institute of Genealogy and Historic Research (IGHR), as well as certificates in Private Investigation and Forensic Genealogy from Boston University. He has been a board member of Massachusetts Genealogical Council and treasurer of The New England Association of Professional Genealogists.
He lectures on a wide variety of genealogical topics, including his specialties of New England and Irish research, at national and regional seminars, as well as at local societies
Hope that you will be able to join us on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at the Brewster Ladies Library, at 10 AM. Come a little early for tea, coffee, and donuts, starting at 9:30.
