NORTH HILLS GENEALOGISTS SPRING CONFERENCE

March 20, 2021 (ONLINE VIA ZOOM)

Dr. Michael Lacopo, DVM

 

Our Spring 2021 Genealogy Conference is on Saturday March 20st, with four lectures by Michael Lacopo, a nationally recognized expert on genealogy research.

Are you the type of person who thinks its fun to spend a day learning about how to conduct research on the internet and dive deeper into the records you find, extracting every last clue that they can give? How about spending a day with like-minded individuals learning about how to best conduct genealogical research to discover your ancestors’ life stories? Then this experience is for you! The conference will be held live via Zoom (no recording). Door prizes are included in the Saturday schedule, which features speaker

Dr. Michael D. Lacopo is a retired small-animal veterinarian born and raised in northern Indiana. He takes a scientific approach to his research as he does to his profession. Researching since 1980, he has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. A self-described “all-American mutt,” his research skills cover a broad range. Michael's interests and strengths include Mennonite research, German and Swiss research, especially as it pertains to the 18th century immigration to America, among many other topics. He believes that as genealogists we should tell the tales of our ancestors and is a vocal proponent for learning the social history that interweaves our ancestors into the fabric of the past. In addition to his story-telling and educational blog, Michael’s presence can be found online at www.Roots4U.com
