Title: Finding Next of Kin for Unclaimed Persons - Medical Examiners Office
Speaker: Forensic Investigator David Boyett (AKA: MEO Genealogist)

In addition to determining the cause and manner of death, the medical examiners office is also charged with locating next of kin for all unclaimed persons. Sometimes this is as simple as sending a police car to notify a next of kin, or as complicated as using all known resources to locate family records and establish a hierarchy of legal next of kin.

This program will cover the process, databases, and volunteers who are used in some of the most difficult cases in Hillsborough County. Many of the resources used to find next of kin have common applications in genealogy research and can be located in several County databases that are open to the public.

About the speaker: David is a past Board member and VP of BAGHS having moved to the Lithia area after retiring with 37 years in Law Enforcement. He is a Graduate of the University of Oklahoma and the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA. Past President of the Broward County Police Chief's Association, Past State Parliamentarian of the Florida Police Chiefs Association in Tallahassee and Past Board Member and Community Policing Committee Chair for the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Washington DC. David is a member of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy and teaches seminars on how to use DNA testing results with family genealogy research. David has been working part-time at the medical examiners office in Tampa for the past three years.
