Expanding Your Research from a Single Fact

We all have some ancestors for whom we have very little information. Perhaps we have a death date or a marriage date and nothing else. The July meeting of the Genealogical Society of Bergen County will feature a Webinar entitled "Expanding Your Research from a Single Fact." In this Webinar, Marian Pierre-Louis shows you how to expand your research from as little as one single fact. She will use multiple examples to show how even the slightest information can lead to new clues and new resources for your research. Meetings are free and open to the public.
