Virtual Genealogy Workshop: Know Your Neighbors
This one-hour virtual workshop describes the tools and techniques for using information about neighbors to solve family history mysteries. Our ancestors often moved in groups and settled near one another. Thus, learning about your ancestors’ neighbors can provide critical information about your own family, particularly women. Genealogist Sheilagh Doerfler of New England Historic Genealogical Society covers sources that may provide information about your ancestors’ neighbors, explains how you can look at traditional sources in new ways to shed light on these relationships, and outlines strategies that can illuminate migration patterns. The workshop is $15 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the NEHGS and $25 for nonmembers. Advance registration is required via Eventbrite.com.
