What Was Great Grandpa Really Like?

Paula A. Sassi

Paula A. Sassi

The study of Genealogy helps people locate and track their ancestors; however, what if you could really gain insight into their true personalities including how they thought, processed feelings and interacted with others? In this presentation, Paula A. Sassi, Certified Master Graphologist, will show you how the basic tenets of handwriting analysis can be applied to the research and study of your ancestors.

By analyzing old documents, records and letters, you can discover what great grandpa was really like as well as many other people in your family lineage. From colonial times to the present, you will learn how to discern personality and behavior from the strokes of writing no matter what the time period or heritage of the person. The information you learn at this presentation will allow you to gain further insight into your research efforts.
