Search vs. Research with speaker Barbara Coakley

Searching is just one step in the process of researching your family history. A case study based on a family story from Chicago in the 1920’s demonstrates the research process from beginning to end - how to develop a research goal, plan the research, document results, and preserve your findings.

Barbara Coakley’s interest in her family history began over 30 years ago when she was given an envelope of family papers. Her journey to discover the stories of her ancestors has taken her to homelands across the US and Europe. Barbara is Vice President of Genealogy Friends of Plano Libraries and edits their newsletter. She is an alumni of ProGen, IGHR, TIGR, GRIP, SLIG and NIGR. Barbara has been teaching genealogy classes at Collin College since 2008 and has done presentations for a number of genealogy societies in North Texas, Washington, Illinois and England.
