Tonight, June 6 at 7pm, The German Genealogy Group will host the program “Same Name, Must Be Same Person: Is That Really Your Ancestor?” with presenter Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer.
Name problems can hinder research. An unprepared family historian can waste valuable time tracking a supposed ancestor who isn’t really part of the family. Learn how to determine unique identifiers so you can recognize ancestors no matter what name they used and differentiate them from other same-named individuals. Ms. Crawford-Oppenheimer, MLS, has a master’s degree in library science and a graduate certificate in archives. Her training is useful to her in developing talks about research for genealogists.
