Who were your Ancestors' Friends?
7:00 pm
Virtual via Zoom
Speaker Biography:
Rebecca Dobbs is a novice genealogist with a specialty in Jewish research. Her methodology includes utilizing individuals’ DNA results to connect them with their ancestral pasts. She became interested in genealogy at the early age of 16 and since then, she has extensively researched her own family history. In recent years, Rebecca has interned with AncestryProGenealogists conducting client-based research and has given local genealogy presentations. Becca is currently working on her American Genealogy Studies certificate through the National Genealogical Society and has future goals of obtaining her Certified Genealogist credential.
Presentation Topic/Description:
Rebecca will be presenting and speaking about the FAN Club, its significance in genealogical research, and how it can help find/identify new relatives in her presentation, “Who were your Ancestors' Friends?” The FAN Club is an acronym for family, associates, and neighbors, a term created by Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG, CGL. Becca applied this genealogical principle to her own research and will be sharing how finding, analyzing, and correlating multiple sources for her (Jewish) 3rd great-aunt, Anna Lublin has assisted with finding (and confirming) her siblings, and their families. She will also share her analysis of the sources, discuss different research techniques, resources for finding information, and ways to solve conflicting information.
