The Genealogical Society of Okaloosa County meets Saturday, May 10, 2014, at 10 a.m. at the [Valparaiso] Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida.
Bruce Rova, past president of the West Florida Genealogical Society, (Pensacola), will be the featured speaker. Watch a YouTube video interview with Bruce Rova that showcases the West Florida Society.
The topic upon which Bruce will focus on Saturday will be "Who's That Lady?".
This program will address a problem that genealogical researchers often encounter: identifying maiden surnames, parents, and other information for women in family trees when we only know a married surname.
Mr. Rova will discuss strategies and resources that can help in this process and will share practical examples of a myriad of means he has used successfully in his research: reviewing how to find direct sources and, especially, gathering and using clues from indirect sources to reveal new information and resolve such problems.
The meetings of the GSOC are open to the public and there is no charge for the regular monthly meetings. So if you're interested in genealogy or family history, please join us.
