Genealogy Interest Group Meeting (8/7/19)

Meeting Information

This quarter, our guest speaker is Annette Burke Lytle with her presentation, Prospecting for Family History in Unexpected Places: 

"Many records of genealogical value are hiding in places we might not think to look for them. How do we discover those hiding places? Like a prospector searching for the mother lode, we can employ a search strategy to help us uncover a gold mine of information in unexpected places. " 

About Annette Burke Lytle:  "I love researching and uncovering facts, relationships, and the stories of our ancestors’ lives. We all have wonderful people and stories in our family trees, and it would be my privilege to help you uncover and share your family’s stories.

I’ve been a full-time genealogist and family historian since 2012. I’ve spoken on a variety of genealogical topics at the national, state, and local level. I have a master’s degree in English from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northern Illinois University. I have taught research, analysis, and writing to college students at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point; Schiller International University in Heidelberg, Germany; the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs, Colorado."   Read more of Ms. Lytle's bio on her Website, http://www.heritagedetective.com.
