Topic: Weaving the Research Quilt

Intertwine all of your research to weave the story of your ancestors.  Learn how to use your information to piece the quilt together. Your ancestors’ lives are not in the isolated, separate documents that you have collected but are in the whole of your research. American and British Isles based records, newspaper articles and other research results on your direct ancestors, other family members and their FAN (friends, associates, neighbours) network can create the patchwork to complete the quilt of your ancestor.

Speaker: Barbara Randall is active in British Isles Family History Society- USA and is editor of the BIFHS-USA Journal. She conducts workshops in the southern CA area. Barbara is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, Genealogical Speakers Guild, International Society of Family History Writers & Editors, New England Historical Genealogical Society, New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, and Southern California Genealogical Society. Barbara is also a Daughters of the American Revolution volunteer genealogist/consultant. She is a special education middle school teacher/coordinator with the Los Angeles Unified School District.
