Clallam County Genealogical Society “Are You Really My Ancestor? “

A Zoom presentation featuring Claire Smith will be hosted by the Clallam County Genealogical Society October 8th at 10:00am.  Claire is an outstanding genealogist and a wonderful speaker.  Her topic will be “Are You Really My Ancestor?  Getting Unstuck, Working Through Research Problems”.

She tells us “When you find a name match for an ancestor, it’s tempting to believe you’re related.  A name isn’t enough to prove the relationship, especially if you have a common surname – like mine!  In this session you’ll learn what it takes to prove a lineage, and how to handle conflicting information or multiple potential matches.  I will share examples that illustrate how to deal with these issues.”
