November 28 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Today’s topic: “Ask Why: Getting More from Research,” presented by KC Reid
Genealogy is research into the unknown. Make the journey easier and your research more thorough by combining different research techniques. This program will not only help you identify key events or documents that may be available for your ancestor, but also guide you in going deeper into the details of the times they lived in and the personal networks they developed.
A professional researcher, analyst, writer and presenter since 1999, KC Reid is a professional genealogist tracking American ancestral lines to the immigrant ancestors. She focuses on building the story of those ancestors to help their descendants understand them as more than names on a page, including recommending travel and experiences so clients can literally walk in their ancestors’ footsteps anywhere in the world.
In addition to her undergraduate degrees in Anthropology and in International Security and Peace, KC holds an M.S. in Strategic Intelligence, another Masters from the prestigious University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University.
KC has lived and traveled extensively around the world and inside the U.S., and worked for several years as a travel agent before focusing on identity construction for the U.S. national security community and private clients.
