Finding Your Ancestors by Researching the Neighbors: Italian Style!

presented by

Annette Burke Lyttle, CG

This presentation will focus on researching neighbors, the neighborhood, cluster, or FAN (family, associates, and neighbors), which are often key in tracing Italian migration patterns. This approach can often be the key to breaking through brick walls. When records left by our ancestors don’t tell their story, we look for the records of the people around them because our ancestors can appear in their records. The records of neighbors can also suggest new places for us to look for records created by our ancestors. Learn how to use this powerful method for advancing your research.

No pre-registration required for in-person attendees.

DNA Tools You Can Use

presented by

Connie Davis

Building genetic networks based on shared common ancestral couples forms the backbone of autosomal DNA analysis. Tools not available at the big testing companies can help, especially when your ancestors might descend from endogamous communities. We’ll take a look at WikiTree’s DNA features, some key tools at GEDmatch, and review how YDNA and mtDNA offer new insight into our ancestry.
