WALKING WITH YOUR ANCESTORS

Presented by:
Nancy Shepherdson

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Nancy Shepherdson is a journalist, author, speaker and communication consultant who has the ability to communicate with an exceptionally wide variety of audiences. Shepherdson has written about online genealogy for a variety of publications. She teaches at the Writer's Studio at the University of Chicago and the Writer's Program at the UCLA.

ABOUT THE TOPIC

We’re happy to welcome Nancy Shepherdson, the author of Ancestor Hunt: Finding Your Family Online, to present this program which will cover the fascinating process of tracking down the exact places your ancestors lived and visiting those places, either in reality or virtually. She will cover searching land records, cemetery records, and local resources, as well as how the library’s access to Ancestry.com can help. Nothing beats the understanding you get from knowing where you came from and what makes you tick like walking where your forebears actually walked.
