Program: September 25, 2016
Genealogist Ron Arons to give two presentations at JGSI September meeting.
The titles of his talks at this special meeting will be “Putting the Flesh on the Bones” and “Evaluating Evidence: Asking a mini-Minnie Question.”
Ron Arons calls “Putting the Flesh on the Bones” his “bread and butter talk” that he has given for 15 years. Through two related examples he explains how one can piece together an ancestor’s life by collecting as much documentation about him or her as possible as well as looking at the environments where they lived.
He will introduce a few tools to help this process, including Life Chronology (his personal history timeline form), the Life Hub & Spoke, and mind maps. The process he describes can enable a genealogist to go beyond the names, dates, and places commonly associated with genealogical research.
