Presented by Ed Storey
For many of us, the most interesting pasts of our family tree are the distant branches of people form long ago. Unfortunately, common sources like census or church records become more sparse as we go back in time. The presentation will focus on where and how to find earlier documents. Ed is a big believer in going back to the source, rather than copying the trees of others. He will discuss how to find early church records, older printed documents with a focus on overseas ancestors.
