Joan Frederici, CCGS President, to be Featured Speaker at CCGS Meeting on Monday, January 16, 2017

Where? Why? When? Historical Context and Our Ancestors' Lives

Knowing the events and circumstances that affected our ancestors' lives will tell us more about who they were as people, why they did the things that they did, and even help to break down some brick walls. Joan Frederici, current President of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society, will be using examples and giving suggestions for how to establish context of the time and areas that would have affected our ancestors' lives. Suggestions will range from the expected to a few unusual ideas that Joan has found helpful in her own research.
