August 2015 Family History Program

Camarillo, California

LOCATION: Camarillo Library Community Room, 4101 Las Posas Rd SPEAKER: Ted Gostin TOPIC: ""Breaking Down Brick Walls: Three Case Studies"" All genealogists eventually run up against a "brick wall" in their research, that is, a research problem that they just can't seem to solve. This lecture reviews three cases studies where brick walls were successfully overcome, and from those experiences draws out a series of research strategies that might be applied to other difficult-to-solve problems. The three case studies involved trying to determine the parents of an early, post-revolutionary American ancestor in New York State (Metcalf); trying to determine JuaneƱo Indian ancestry (from Mission San Juan Capistrano) in a California Latino family (Mireles); and trying to find any trace of a Polish-Jewish immigrant tailor in England in the mid-1800s.
