Lake County Genealogical Society – Avoiding an Ancestor Identity Crisis by Shelly Bishop

April 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The Lake County Genealogical Society (LCGS) will be meeting via Zoom on April 25th at 10:00 a.m. Anyone who is working on their family tree or is interested in historical and genealogical research is invited to join us. Following a brief business meeting, our guest speaker, Shelly Bishop, an Ohio-based genealogist and President of the Great Lakes Chapter of the Association for Professional Genealogists, will present “Avoiding an Ancestor Identity Crisis”. How can a person tell if a name in a record or database is really your ancestor? Genealogists are often faced with the challenge of identifying ancestors despite same names, irregular spellings, inconsistent ages, similar places, unknown maiden names, missing vital records, ancestral migration, and boundary changes. Shelly Bishop will demonstrate the use of seven strategies to help solve identity problems to keep your research on track. She is the owner of Buckeye Family Trees and specializes in Ohio genealogical research. She is also a frequent contributor to Family Tree Magazine, National Genealogical Society Magazine, and other publications.
