“From the Sources’ Mouth” presented by Daniel Hubbard

 

 

 

May 19, 2022 7:00 pm

 

Once we’ve understood that identities can be tricky to reconstruct, how do we piece together the tidbits of information that we find into an actual ancestor? How do we avoid putting together a great-great franken father from the spare parts we find in the documents we dig up? Do we trust what seems to be true, or do we look long and hard into the “source’s mouth.”

Daniel Hubbard is a full-time professional researcher. Daniel combines his skills in technology, genealogy, and complex research, the organizing of large amounts of information, writing, editing and book design to assist clients with their family history projects. Dan Hubbard after 8 years on the board of the Lake County Illinois Genealogical Society is now Past President.  He has been on the board of the Swedish American Genealogical Society at the Swedish American Museum in Chicago for many years.
