I had the pleasure of traveling to Dallas, Texas this past week and presenting to about 400 members of the Texas Daughters of the American Revolution who identify themselves with the peacock, hence the name The Peacock Gals!
And because it was the Daughters of the American Revolution, we talked genealogy.
On Thursday, I walked them through an example of using census records to set up the framework for creating a timeline of an ancestor’s life.
And on Friday, I shared a few search tips and tricks with them.
Hope one or both of these presentations help you with your research!
