Researching 20th Century Ancestors

 Guest Speaker: Diane Richard

Our research skills aren't just for researching the long-ago deceased; they also apply to researching a 20th-century loved one. Diane Richard. Our guest speaker, will talk about her research into the youth of her English-born "mum" (or "mom"). Think you know your mom? By the time one is an adult, we often assume that we know all there is to know about, say, a mother, father, or grandparents. How wrong we might be. We sometimes get so focused on researching the long-ago deceased that we skip over the individuals we lived with or frequently visited. Don't wait! Diane will discuss the research she undertook and share some tips & tricks that you might employ if you pursue similar research into a more recently deceased family member.
