“Case Study: Genealogy of Renee Kaufman”
Presented by Stephen P. Morse.
Researchers of all levels can learn methodology from Case Studies. This lecture presents a case study using the One-Step Webpages invented by Stephen Morse to develop a family history when only a minimal amount of initial information is available.
He creates an entire genealogy, showing how to obtain records in spite of name misspellings, and how to avoid accepting wrong information.
Stephen Morse has spoken to MCGS several times in the past and is warmly anticipated again. As he puts it: “In his other life Morse is a computer professional with a doctorate degree in engineering. He is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086, the granddaddy of today’s Pentium processor, which sparked the PC revolution 30 years
ago. We know him best for his invention of the One-Step Webpages, which make searching Ellis Island, the 1940 Census and many other websites easier for researchers.” Go to www.stevemorse.org for more interesting information and techniques.
The first twenty minutes of our meeting will include a period to share information about hard-to-research ancestors.
Do you have an ancestor that’s been a real challenge to research? Bring your photos, stories and memorabilia to share.
Note that our General Meetings have been switched to the 4th Thursday of the month.
About our Meetings:
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Thursday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Thursday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
