I am contacting you on behalf of the Old Buncombe County Genealogical Society (OBCGS) in Asheville, NC.
We are offering a professional workshop, “Beyond the Barriers” on June 20, 2020 that may be of interest to your members. The speaker is Dr. Thomas W. Jones, a board-certified genealogist, who is nationally known as a writer, a knowledgeable and entertaining presenter and editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly.
The most interesting topic lineup includes:
- Building a Credible Lineage Despite Missing information, Conflicting and Incorrect Records and Undocumented Publication
- Finding ‘Unfindable’ Ancestors
- The Jones Jinx: Tracing Common Surnames
- Systematically Using Autosomal DNA Test Results to Help Break Through Genealogical Brick Walls
