Solving your genealogy puzzles with clues you already have

Looking for your ancestors? At the Tuesday meeting of the Nevada County Genealogical Society, learn how to solve your genealogy problems for those situations where some of your key data are missing or inadequate. Case studies are presented to show how the use of inferential methods may be used to fill genealogical gaps while maintaining research integrity. Some of the case studies are taken from work in German genealogy, so this presentation will have benefits both for the regular genealogists and those with a special interest in German research.

Speaker James Baker, PhD, CG, has been seriously involved in genealogy for the past 10 years, including serving as an officer of the Sacramento German Genealogy Society and contributing 12 articles to its quarterly journal. He also has an article in the current issue of National Genealogical Society Magazine. In 2011, he completed the Board for Certification of Genealogists requirements to become a certified genealogist with a specialty in German genealogy research.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Community Room, Madelyn Helling Library, Nevada City. For information, call Helen Martini at 530-273-0855 or visit
