The following information comes from our friends at the Manatee Genealogical Society:
The seminar theme is "Finding Your Elusive Ancestors." Do you have an elusive ancestor? — An ancestor that has become an obstacle or a proverbial “brick wall?” We all do. This seminar is Saturday, January 29, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. (EST) and features four nationally recognized genealogical speakers who will focus on this theme in their programs. You will be able to submit your questions to the speakers for expert guidance, and you will also have the chance to win prizes from major genealogical companies such as Ancestry, Family Tree DNA, My Heritage, and others.
The speakers and topics are:
• D. Joshua Taylor, “Bridging the Gap: Finding Ancestors in the U.S. Between 1780 and 1840.”
