You Can Never Be Sure You Know Who You Are

Frankford’s own Flag House Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored a genealogy workshop at the Historical Society of Frankford on April 9th with a full house of participants.  It was presented by Deborah Hershey, a certified genealogist and a member of the Harrisburg Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.

This was an excellent presentation for the new genealogist which went into great detail on the documentation and process of how to really find out who you are.  With all of the electronic sources now available online, it is very easy to get lost in misinformation.

Also on the agenda was Sylvia Wilkins who gave a first hand account about her search for her ancestors and the pitfalls that you may encounter in the beginning.  You can read all about it at this PBS link.

This was well worth the price of admission and should become a popular annual event at the HSF.
