  • Date:  Wednesday, August 2, 2017
  • Time:  7:00 PM Central

  • Description: People sometimes disappear intentionally. Midwestern scofflaw and bigamist Robert Lee Chamberlain stole church funds and abandoned his family, rattling around the Midwest and Pacific Northwest before dying in New Mexico. By following clues in the records it's possible to track down even a 20th-century scofflaw.

  • Presenter: Diane L. Richard is a professional researcher, lecturer, and author since 2004. She focuses on the south, African-American, lineage research, and genealogy tools. She has appeared on Who Do You Think You Are?; writes for Internet Genealogy, Upfront with NGS, etc., and edits two genealogy journals. She has emigrant landless peasant ancestry!
