The chapter meeting will open at 9:30 a.m. EDT with microphones turned on for socializing. The business meeting will begin at 9:45 a.m., followed by the presentation at 10:00 a.m.

Our speaker will be Julie Szczepankiewicz who will present FAN Out! Using Cluster Research to Break Through Genealogical Brick Walls.

Got a brick-wall ancestor? FAN research—research into an ancestor’s Friends, Associates and Neighbors—might help you answer your research questions. Sometimes the paper trail fails us and crucial information about place of origin or parents’ names is not found in documents pertaining to our ancestors. However, research into our ancestor’s social network and extended family can often help us to break through these brick walls. Julie will demonstrate how this can be accomplished using a variety of case studies which illustrate the process in action, and identify some of the best FANs on which to focus for one’s research.
