Please note that the session originally scheduled, Denise Spurlock's "Life on the Farm" has been postponed indefinitely. Thank you to Michael for filling in.

This lecture illustrates the joys and pitfalls of Virginia research as well as illustrating the Genealogical Proof Standard utilizing social history, female research and family analysis to identify the parents of Elizabeth Stith, the ancestor “from nowhere.”

Dr. Michael D. Lacopo has been researching since 1980 and has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. A self-described “all-American mutt,” his research skills cover a broad range. He is currently a retired veterinarian working full-time in the world of genealogy at Roots4U.com.

If you haven't read his compelling, well-written, cliff-hanging series of his "Hoosier Daddy" blog, take some time and read it from the beginning. It's an excellent example of a well-researched, fascinating family history story. You can find it here: http://roots4u.blogspot.com/
