SKCGS General Meeting – Presenter Julie stoddard

September 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


SKCGS General Meeting (online)
Julie Stoddard presents “Seeing the Hidden Evidence: Strategies to Improve FAN Club Research”
When researching ancestors who lived in earlier time periods or regions with few records, the lack of records can create a brick wall in the research. This necessitates expanding the research to include the cluster of people who associated with the ancestor: immediate and extended family, friends, associates, and neighbors, also known as the ancestor’s FAN Club. Come learn when to use cluster research, who is in the ancestor’s cluster, how to organize the findings, and the steps for successful cluster research.

She received a BA in family history from BYU and a master’s degree in Genealogical Studies from the University of Strathclyde. She works part-time as the senior mentor for BYU’s Center for Family History and Genealogy, managing the Linking Families for Cancer Prevention project.
