Sara Gredler, MS, presents

Think Like a Historian: Why Do People Do What They Do?



ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
History is looking at the big picture. Genealogy is micro-history, looking at individual people during historic events to place them within the larger context. Why do people do the things they do? Use the records that do exist to make reasonable hypotheses about the life of an ancestor.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Sara Gredler, MS, is a genealogist and historian with 20 years of genealogical experience. She serves as the President of the Williamson County (Texas) Genealogical Society and chairs its DNA SIG. 

HANDOUT
A handout will be available shortly before the presentation. A link will be included in a reminder that will be sent the day before the session.
