Can You Keep Your Same Named Relatives Straight?

Separating Same Named Individuals Genealogy Webinar

Some individuals with similar names have been combined, crossed and muddled over time. Who do you know which Charles is which?

 Are you bound to be hopelessly bogged down trying to decide if it's Charles Smith the dentist or Charles Smith the plumber? What if your two Charles relatives have wives with the same names and children of similar ages and monikers? Will it be pointless to untangle the mess?

Melissa Finlay will help you learn how to differentiate between same-named people using a composite of time, place, family members, occupation and other unique identifiers. Melissa will present her class during the Back 2 Research eConference on 23 September 2017.


The eConfernece will start at 8:30 am CST and end at 4:00 PM and will feature Melissa, along with 3 other presenters. The best part of this conference is the live chat feature during Melissa's presentation and during a 5th-hour live panel discussion with conference participants.

Genealogy eConference for Hurricane Harvey Flood Relief


Members of The Humble Area Genealogical Society had the flood waters from Hurricane Harvey damage or destroy their homes. Our conference was originally going to use proceeds from this conference to help our chapter's preservation efforts. However, our board feels the funds donated will best serve our community best by helping the impacted society members recover.

As such, this eConference will give 50% of each registration to the relief of these members. Register today and provide aid.
