 “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Is this Genealogy, or the Cha-Cha?”

Presented by: Sara Cochran

Are you at a standstill with your genealogy research? Revisiting and reevaluating our early research and home sources of information might seem like a waste of time, but often, it’s the key to getting past a roadblock in our research. Join us as Sara Cochran discusses techniques for finding new clues in records we already have, and looks at several small case studies to see the value of taking the time to go backward in order to go forward.

About the speaker: Sara is a full-time professional genealogist with over twenty-five years of experience. Her research has taken her into nearly every State in the USA as well as Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Britain. She holds a Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, a Bachelor’s Degree in Library Science, and is an alumnus of the ProGen Study Group. She especially enjoys breaking down brick walls for her clients, discovering the stories of black sheep ancestors, and helping individuals preserve their photographic legacy.
