"The Research Trip of a Lifetime" presented by Tom O'Brien
Tom O'Brien will explain what steps were taken to find and visit the birthplace of his mother's paternal grandfather. It proved to be "The Research Trip of a Lifetime".
Tom spent 32 years trying to learn this ancestors birthplace. In February 2015, with help from a fellow genealogist, he was successful in learning that it was a small Alsatian village of about 1300 people. Immediately he began making plans to visit in May of 2016.
He will share the steps taken to make this visit a truly memorable experience.
