FAMILY BRANCHES: Different areas require different genealogy strategies



“Genealogy Research Trips: The Good, Bad and the Ugly!” will be presented on April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Indiana Historical Society by Ann Wells who is a professional genealogist. Anyone planning a genealogy research trip without doing some serious planning will waste an enormous amount of time when reaching the research destination.

The program will feature tips on how to plan, things to think about, and how to be ready for research. Another program on May 17 will discuss what to do when information from several researchers doesn’t “add up” and it’s time to start over and look at all the information again. Dr. Michael D. Lacopo, a retired small-animal veterinarian, takes a scientific approach to his research as he does in his profession. His lecture, “Deconstructing Your Family Tree: Re-evaluating the Evidence,” is pertinent today with so many Internet family trees that get cut and pasted into one another’s research without checking the facts or sources. Dr. Lacopo has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. Both programs will be from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Indiana Historical Society, 450 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis, IN. The cost is $10 for each program ($8 for members) which includes parking. To register visit or call 317-232-1882.
