Creating a Research Plan for Cluster Research

Thursday, May 21, 3:00–4:00 PM (EDT)

Presented by: Lindsay Fulton, Director of NEHGS Research Services

Hit a brick wall in your research? Cluster research is a method that broadens the scope of your research to include your ancestor’s extended family, associates, and neighbors—all with the goal of solving a genealogical mystery. But by broadening the scope of your research, you’re also increasing your number of leads, records, and results. Join Director of Research Services Lindsay Fulton to learn how a solid research plan can help you stay on track, stay organized, and achieve your research goals effectively and efficiently.

FREE Online Author Event

The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are

Presented by the Author, Journalist Libby Copeland

May 20, 2020 – 6:00 pm EST

Guest Moderator: Amy Dockser Marcus, staff reporter, The Wall Street Journal

The Lost Family is a deeply reported look at the rise of home genetic testing and the seismic shock it has had on individual lives. Journalist Libby Copeland explores the culture of genealogy buffs, the science of DNA, and the business of companies like Ancestry and 23andMe, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story.
