March 2023 Meeting- Brick Wall – The Mysterious George Hunter by Joe Hunter

March 31, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Brick Wall – The Mysterious George Hunter

Some ancestors can be so elusive, it almost appears that they have vanished intentionally. Exhaustive research can uncover indirect evidence to compensate for missing and incomplete records in an ancestor’s life. The speaker will review some alternative methods for breaking down that brick wall using indirect evidence.

Presented by Joe Hunter:

Joe has a certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University (OL29), a certificate of completion in the ProGen 50 Study Group and is the current President on the Board of the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (GPAC-APG). He is also the Presentation Coordinator for The Main Line Genealogy Club (MLGC), a Distance Member Coordinator for The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA), and is on the planning Committee for TIARA’s Celtic Connections Conference. Joe is a volunteer genealogist for the Vineland Historical & Antiquarian Society (VHAS).
Joe has been researching his family history for the last 25 years, having traced all (16) of his 2X great grandparents back to Ireland. Joe has utilized his research to obtain dual citizenship with Ireland, and participated in a research trip with New England Historic Genealogy Society (NHGS) to the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) in 2012. On most days, Joe can be found pursuing some forgotten ancestor, in an obscure townland in Ireland. As his wife likes to say, “Joe, you have more dead friends, than living ones.” Genealogy is the gift that keeps on giving. So, there is no time to waste!
