Finding Your Elusive Ancestors
Doing a "Resonably Exhaustive Search"

The first element of the Genealogical Proof Standard is "to do a reasonably exhaustive search." In this presentation, Randy Seaver will explain the GPS, take us on a whirlwind tour through traditional and onlin resources that should be included in a search, discuss his favorite search strategies and techniques, and introduce several case studies of his still elusive ancestors.

His activities include serving the Chula Vista Genealogical Society (former President, current Newsletter Editor and Research Chairman), speaking to Southern California groups, teaching Beginning Computer Genealogy senior adult classes, and writing the Genealogy 2.0 column for the FGS's FORUM Magazine. He is also na member of NGS, NEHGS, SDGS, and CGSSD, and blogs daily about genealogy, and the Chula Vista Genealogy Cage

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
