    The Art of Negative-Space Research: Women

    Our speaker will be Jeanne Larzalere Bloom

    Like using negative space in art, the successful identification of women is often accomplished by using the records of friends and family. A case study demonstrates how to successful use this technique.

    Jeanne Larzalere Bloom is a full-time professional researcher specializing in Chicago and Cook County research, forensic genealogy, problem-solving, and multi-generational family histories. On behalf of the Department of the Army, Jeanne searches for and identifies family members of unaccounted for servicemen from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Jeanne writes articles for scholarly journals and society publications. She is a frequent lecturer at conferences, workshops, and institutes.
