Join us on October 14, for Hunting for Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals with Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, where you will learn about the importance of studying an ancestor's associates can help solve a genealogical mystery.
Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014, 8:00 pm Central
Description: Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois. The United States records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover in Germany. This lecture will detail how his town of origin and parents were identified, in spite of the lack of records naming him. Carefully researching each of his associates and correlating all available evidence reveals the origins of Henry. Use of the Genealogical Proof Standard is demonstrated.
Presenter: Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG
Teresa Steinkamp McMillin is a certified genealogist who specializes in German-American and Midwest research. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a child, and actively researching her German ancestry for the past thirteen years, as well as her husband's Chicago Irish ancestors.
