The History of Genealogy: From Biblical Begetting, to Royalty, to Donald Lines Jacobus, to Online Ancestors. A GSBC Program. (Online) Online

Join us before the program for a GSBC General Meeting beginning at 1:30pm ET, where a prize drawing will be held for GSBC members only.

The presentation will begin at 2:00pm ET.

The history of genealogy, finding and recording ancestors has a very long history. It is a field that started in the Middle Ages, and is still evolving today. Find out how it started in the context of corruption, lies and ambition, but transformed into a field with high standards, accuracy and advanced tools - and controversy. 

Presented by Mark Fearer.

Mark Fearer is a professional genealogist with Ancestral Discovery (ancestraldiscovery.com), specializing in Jewish genealogy, and has pursued family history since 1984.

He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and several genealogy societies. He has attended the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research, and Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh, and is a graduate of the ProGen Study Course.
