We normally start our meetings at 7:00 pm. Our speaker likes to start earlier to allow for questions and new additions. So we will be starting at 6:30 pm. Don’t be late!
Join Stephen Morse as he shows us that searching for Presidential records is no different than searching for ancestral records. We are used to looking for our ancestors in ship manifests and in census records. We have mastered a variety of tricks for finding people in spite of name misspellings and incorrect birth dates. You might think that United States Presidents are a breed apart from our ancestors, but they are not. They arrived on ships and have come face-to-face with the census taker. He will show you that we will encounter some of the same problems with both, and will use some of the same techniques for resolving them.
