About this webinar

Census enumerations offer invaluable snapshots of families, but like any record, can lead researchers astray. Names may be mangled, ages fudged, or individuals or families be enumerated twice – or not at all. This entertaining presentation follows a Norwegian immigrant family forward and backward in time to untangle the makeup of a 1910 Minnesota family.

    Thanks, Jay. for a great lecture. It really helped me see your 3-D Genealogy concept very well. How you made all these connections still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but I’ll watch the lecture again and more pieces should fit into the puzzle.

    Excellent presentation. The tables are so helpful in making sense of the conflicting information.

    This is amazing research and shows a great deal of imagination on the part of Mr. Fonkert. The changes in family names and locations would baffle any genealogist.
