Shaking the Myth: Proving/Disproving Family Legends

Just because a story has been passed on for generations doesn’t mean it’s true; it may be--or it may have some elements of truth--or it may be just a figment of someone’s imagination. But how can we substantiate--or refute--these legends? Dr. Hibben will discuss ways to prove or disprove family folklore, and will apply theories of proving arguments to examples supplied by the audience. Audience participation is strongly encouraged!

Jean Wilcox Hibben melds 13 years of teaching speech communications with her interests in folklore and genealogy and over 45 years experience playing guitar and other folk instruments, to present programs that are both instructional and entertaining.

A Certified Genealogist, Jean is secretary of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, president of the Southern California Chapter, Association of Professional Genealogists, president of the Corona (Calif.) Genealogical Society, and membership and meeting coordinator of the Riverside Folk Song Society.
