‘Find Clues, Find Answers’ With Genealogy Club, May 9 At Library

Published: May 7, 2018

The next meeting of the Genealogy Club of Newtown will be Wednesday, May 9, in the lower meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.

This month’s guest speaker is Marian Wood, whose subject will be “Find Clues, Find Answers — The Genealogical Proof Standard.”

To go from clues to answers for the toughest family history challenges, genealogists learn to apply the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS). Ms Wood’s demonstration will show how to arrive at a solid conclusion by defining and researching the question, citing sources, analyzing and correlating dates, and resolving conflicts, thus answering the research question. After seeing GPS in action, guests will have practical new ideas for turning clues into real conclusions.

Marian Wood is a member of the Genealogy Club of Newtown. She is a textbook author, an avid genealogy researcher, and a frequent speaker for genealogy clubs and at conferences.

She earned a BA from City College of New York, and an MBS from Long Island University of New York.

She is also the author of a popular genealogy book, Planning A Future For Your Family’s Past.

Genealogy Club meetings start promptly at 7, but light refreshments are served and networking begins earlier. All are welcome.

For additional information contact Bea Morgan at 203-304-1861 or the library, 203-426-4533.
