Great Grandfather was a wonderful genealogist, but even with the best plan, three generations later some of his treasures are now hard for family members to find. This Father and Daughter team wants to do better. What is the best plan for digitizing and archiving the items in their family history boxes? Where do they find the time and resources to implement that plan? Where do they put the most important items so that all of the family can find them? How do they make sure that all future generations have access to the stories, artifacts and pictures that bring recent and current generations to life?

Register for Tuesday's BCG Webinar - Finding Thomas' Father: an 18th Century Prince William County Virginia Case Study by Pam Stone Eagleson, CG

Register-bcg


Thomas Stone left few records when he died in 1791 in Prince William County Virginia. No document or reference names his parentage. Finding Thomas's father took thirty years. Using indirect evidence and helped by technological advances, Thomas's father has been found. Land records make the case. This presentation demonstrates the process of creating a proof argument to identify Thomas's father.
