Library to host renowned Genealogist

Posted: Thursday, August 9, 2018

Genealogy research can often hit a wall where the data doesn’t quite fit together or leads on new information run dry. For hobbyists, this can grind progress to a halt; however, professional researchers and genealogists have some tricks up their sleeves that can help anyone in their research.

This informative presentation, Rubik’s Cube Genealogy: A New Twist on Your Old Data aims to share that knowledge with everyone and will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, August 20 in the Huntington Library’s Indiana Room. Presented by Elissa Powell, a professional genealogist and researcher, it will demonstrate a variety of tricks used in advanced levels of research and ways to look at what data you have from different angles. If you want to learn ways you can shed new light on your current project, this presentation is a must-see.
