Ed Storey Presents: “Pushing Back the Clock: Some not so Common Sources for Researching Your Elusive Ancestors”

Description: The presentation will focus on where to find genealogy records earlier than about 1850, in both American and European locations. There will be examples of documents as well as information about good sources. Contemporary records are generally better than copying those in other’s trees. Not all possible sources, of course, will be shown but the examples can provide guidance to help the viewers search on their own.

BIO: Ed Storey grew up in Rochester, N.Y., where he worked for GM. He also lived in El Paso, Beijing, and Colorado Springs. His ancestors are relatively recent arrivals in the US, so lots of his searches are in Europe and India. He has been writing genealogy articles for a little over 20 years. Topics are primarily how to find contemporary genealogy records. His current goals are to learn more about the details of the life of ancestors. Storey lives in Green Valley, Arizona, with his wife Nancy.
