Who Is Missing from the Story? - Deanne M. Benbrook; Basic, Intermediate; (Saturday at 2:00 PM)
Researching gaps in timelines, information on records, and various resources all help to build the stories of our ancestors. This presentation will share two examples of how diving deeper into record research can help bring in new information and even new individuals, often very important individuals. Participants will learn to look at their own research, identifying gaps and missing information, and learn how to use FamilySearch to search for newspaper sources and unindexed records to try and uncover what, or who, is missing from the story.
