Description Technical Specs
Our ancestors persevered in spite of disaster and misfortune so that we could be here today to tell their stories. Join webinar favorite, Thomas MacEntee, to learn how to locate evidence of their experiences and how to add their first-hand accounts to that body of evidence.

Horatio Spofford, author of the hymn It Is Well With My Soul, overcame immense tragedy, misfortune and disaster (the death of his only son, the Great Chicago Fire, a shipwreck which killed his four remaining daughters) to not only stay true to his values but to help others and still keep a positive outlook on life. How did our ancestors persevere and survive in the face of disaster - natural, manmade and financial - so that we could be here today to tell their stories? In this webinar, learn how to not only locate your ancestors amidst the rubble, but give voice to their stories.

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on November 9, 2011. 1 hour 14 minutes. Plus 5 pages of handouts with clickable links.
