Feburary 8 Meeting at 7 p.m. - “Elimination: As Necessary as Acquisition,” by Jean Wilcox Hibben, PhD, MA

Sometimes the best clues are provided by what is NOT present, and that can be as helpful as what IS. When a thorough search proves a person is NOT in a particular location at a particular time, then it is might be an indication that looking elsewhere is a good idea. See how this can be especially beneficial through the methodology demonstrated in a case study.

Jean is a professional genealogist, national speaker, and former college speech professor. She is well known in the genealogical community and has spoken at the SCGS Jamboree, as well as the AVGS Kin Dig.

Available online only at: avgenealogy.org/meeting. Link will become active thirty minutes before the meeting.

AVGS Research Center

The Research Center is now closed and all the books have been placed into storage. While we look for a new location, we are also making plans for a temporary "pop-up" research center with volunteer assistants, computers, and access to Ancestry Library Edition.
