About this webinar

Men of the same name is a constant challenge for every serious researcher. In the case of recognized Revolutionary patriot John Jacob Kramer, we discover how this one man's identity was actually compiled from three separate and distinct men. We will review military records, family lore, congressional papers, and more to unravel the tangle of mistaken identity passed down through the generations.
Presented live at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
