The speaker, Dr. Michael D. Lacopo, will speak on methods to research ancestors who are "hard to find" or seemingly invisible. If your ancestors had little money, did not own land, did not leave wills or probates, and did not purchase stones for graves, then how do you find them? This lecture will show you how!

Researching since 1980, he has lectured internationally and written for numerous periodicals and journals. A self- described “all-American mutt,” his research skills cover a broad range, with specialties in German research, Mid-Atlantic American research, genetic genealogy, social history, and advanced problem solving.
