About this webinar

Identifying unnamed individuals using a Research Plan incorporating genetic evidence takes creativity and patience.

    This webinar was very detailed and informative. The presenter was very knowledgeable of his various tasks, and proved that being organized in his many approaches lead him to negative and positive results. He did an excellent job at showing that persistency is key in this particular aspect of genealogy. I also enjoyed his sharing of his emotions as he progressed through his research. I can relate to him and don’t feel that I am being unreasonable when I express my frustrations (even loud ones)!! Thank you!!!

    Excellent webinar!! I was captivated from beginning to end. The ability to lift names off of paper and breathe life into history means people will never be forgotten. It’s why I love genealogy. Thank you for sharing and best of luck as you continue this research project!

    I’ve been researching my family genealogy and others for more than 50 years and I’m always picking up important pieces of information. Observing how other genealogists and historians do their research and the paths they take towards their goals, gives me the energy to keep going.
