As family historians, we focus on tracing our ancestry further and further into the past, going back one generation at a time. There are, however, cases when we need to do the opposite and trace lines forward. In this webinar, Genealogist Hallie Borstel will discuss how descendancy research, i.e. tracing all descendants of an individual to the present, can help you further your research. Whether you are building out your ancestors’ network of extended family, hoping to understand DNA connections, working on a study project, creating a family association, or just want to connect with distant family, this webinar will give you the necessary tools and strategies for finding living relations.
This syllabus is intended to accompany our webinar “Finding the Living: Doing Descendancy Research” (archived recording: https://www.americanancestors.org/education/learning-resources/watch).
